Our service helps you offer better access to care, protection and preventative services, so you can deliver the best possible outcomes for patients and vulnerable people, meet the requirements under section 13G of the NHS Act as well as meet your Public Sector duties under the Equality Act 2010. Quality medical interpreters contribute greatly to the effective delivery of NHS services. In many cases, they help save lives and deliver better health outcomes through accurate translation.
Our high-quality translation and interpreting helps you achieve these goals and reduce medical risks in several ways.
INTRAN enables access to professional interpreters trained and qualified to work in medical practices, hospitals and community healthcare contexts, as well as mental health.
Reducing risks improves health outcomes
As Muela Ribera et al. (2008) state in Is the Use of Interpreters in Medical Consultation Justified? A Critical Review of Literature, “linguistic barriers affect preventative care, quality of care, patient satisfaction, and health satisfaction”.
