If your first or spoken language is not English and you need an interpreter to help you speak to staff, please ask a relative or friend to tell your nurse as soon as possible. Your GP may already have told us that you may need an interpreter, but if not, the nurse in charge of your ward will do their best to make arrangements to provide a translator as quickly as possible.
