Before booking a BSL interpreter, please check with the management of the healthcare provider if there is a contracted interpreting agency. So, for example, if a Deaf person needs to attend a police station or court, the police and courts services will book and pay for an interpreter to be present so that there is a complete and effective communication between all parties. The same is true for healthcare including mental health services ; when a Deaf person makes an appointment with their GP or dentist, or is referred to a hospital or healthcare service such as a dietician or stop smoking clinic those public services must provide an interpreter for any appointments.
There has been a lot of work done, to in this area, to educate Deaf people of their rights to an interpreter and how they should check that they have a trained, qualified and registered professional for these vital interactions with public services.
It is very simple to check. There has been a recent development which has given cause for concern — people without a yellow badge, acting as interpreters in potentially dangerous situations. In response to this, Deaf people have used formal channels to make complaints about these people.
All interpreting services are free to our patients. We can provide British Sign Language interpreters, lip-speakers, speech-to-text reporters and deaf-blind interpreters. If you need an interpreter for your appointment, please let the service know and they will make the arrangements for you. The service will need notice to arrange this, so please inform them as soon as you receive your appointment date, although every effort will be made to help in an emergency.
Please ask your clinical team for this. The Trust can provide other reports including annual reports, in translation, large print, Braille, easy-read format or on audio tape.
