Medical Interpreting Services

Changing Lives With Our Medical Interpreting Services

The number of non-English speaking patients in the UK is growing rapidly and continuously. This is why we, at Absolute Interpreting and Translations, work regularly and closely with a great number of NHS trusts across the UK, providing professional, high-quality and accurate Medical Interpreting Services at very competitive rates. Our provision of this essential service is based on our strong belief that language should never position itself as a barrier between a patient and access to healthcare.
We acknowledge that the conversations and discussions that take place in a medical environment regularly employ specialist medical terminology. Consequently, this can lead to significant comprehension difficulties. Our high-quality Medical Interpreting Services prevent such fatalities from occurring and are, therefore, pivotal for our multilingual community. This kind of interpreting facilitates communication between medical professionals and their non-English speaking patients.

Our Medical Interpreting Services Support The NHS

At Absolute, we provide Professional Medical Interpreters to all medical environments, for example:

  • Hospitals
  • GP Surgeries
  • Home visits
  • Walk-in centres

For non-English speakers, medical environments can be scary places. Our Medical Interpreting Services enable effective communication between the medical professional and the patient, therefore achieving meaningful consultations. This will, in turn, encourage patients to pursue their follow up appointments and medication procedures. As a result, when patients are equipped with the confidence to attend their appointments, this will reduce the number of those who do not attend, saving the NHS’s time and resources. Essentially, our services guarantee reassured patients, and this will lead to better and more positive outcomes for the NHS and their patients. Not only will our services yield better patient trust, but it will also permit the NHS to treat a greater number of patients as time will not be wasted on those who refuse to attend consultations.

Personal Medical Interpreters

At Absolute, we want our clients to feel comfortable and confident with us and our services. So, if you have preference over, or regularly use one of our medical interpreters, then we can assign them as your Personal Medical Interpreter. This will, in turn, guarantee that your demands will be successfully met as your allocated linguist will already be aware of your personal expectations and they will, therefore, be able to deliver accordingly.

Why Do So Many NHS Trusts Choose Absolute As Their Interpreting Services Provider?

For almost two decades, Absolute Interpreting and Translations has been a recognised and approved language service provider for many NHS trusts across the UK. This is because our Professional Medical Interpreters are DBS checked and most are even DPSI qualified. Furthermore, we provide only professional interpreters who are able to effectively advocate on behalf of the patient and the doctor. They have, not only, a deep understanding of medical terminology, but they also exercise an exemplary command of at least two languages. We understand the weak interpreting can deter a patient from future consultations and this can lead to fatal consequences whereby even lives may be at stake. 
This is why we ensure that our medical interpreters either come from a medical background, have medical qualifications, or have previous experience in providing medical interpreting services. In addition to this, all of our new interpreters must attend a mandatory yet intensive training course with us. This equips them with the essential skills and knowledge required to effectively interpret in a medical environment.
Additionally, we realise that medical appointments discuss highly sensitive and personal information. At Absolute, we address all security concerns of our clients which is why all of our interpreters must sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) prior to working with us. This highlights how our professional interpreters vow to keep your private information confidential at all times.  

Telephone or Video Interpreting Services

For the majority of medical interpreting scenarios, Face-to-Face Interpreting is the most effective because the interpreter will be able to better engage with the patient and professional. However, when scheduling a face-to-face interpreter is simply not feasible, then we also offer Telephone Interpreting Services or Video Interpreting Services. At Absolute, we understand that the NHS will require our interpreters for emergency medical appointments, this is why we strive to provide our services even from a distance.
