Medic Interpreters provide face-to-face interpreting by medically trained linguists to aid communication and the exchange of information between patients with limited English and health care professionals.
Within today's multi-cultural society, the crucial role of a medical interpreter is invaluable to the UK health system. Our specially trained and experienced healthcare interpreters enable the accurate interpretation of medical information between patients and a medical professional faced with a language barrier.
Engaged in a variety of environments and settings including Hospitals, private clinics and General Practices; our linguists interpret symptoms, medical histories, questions and concerns from patients to doctors. And with knowledge of medical terminologies our interpreters precisely explain diagnosis, treatment and medical information from medical staff directly to their patients.
We provide affordable medical interpreters in over 100 languages and dialects to interpret between patients and their health professionals. Our linguists are culturally aware, compliant with preserving patient confidentiality and specifically trained to interpret for medical situations. We specialise in consecutive and face-to-face interpreting, in all types of medical environments and at any time of the day.
“Medic Interpreters’ offer a special quality of interpreter – ones with both a vocation to care and an understanding of medical matters”
