Patients or their families can request interpreter services on admission or prior to arrival by phoning (07) 5422 4411.
If English is not your first language, you are entitled to a free professionally accredited interpreter in your preferred language. This includes those people who are deaf or hearing impaired and communicate through sign language such as Auslan. Generally, a minimum of 24 hours’ notice is required to book an interpreter. Please ask the nursing staff to arrange one for you.
