Interpreter services

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.
