BSL interpreting cards
As a member of the 2015 NHS Employers Equality and Diversity Partners Programme, we have been fortunate to share ideas with our colleagues around the UK. Another NHS organisation, together with their local authority have consented to us adopting the below BSL interpreting cards.
The cards will enable service users to highlight to staff their additional needs. As a BSL user (patient, parent, carer, relative), please hand this card to a member of staff who will find instructions on the reverse on how to book translation and interpretation services. Staff will book a double appointment where possible to allow time for interpretation together with the ensuring the additional need is flagged on your personal records.
For more information on how to use this card, please see the supporting leaflet on How to use the BSL Interpreting Card.
