What if I need an interpreter or translator services?
NHS South East Essex can provide you with an interpreter or translator free-of-charge for your appointments with your GP, dentist or health professionals in the community such as Health Visitors or District Nurses. This includes transcribing clinical correspondence onto audio CD for people with disabilities which make it difficult for them to access written information.
