British Sign Language (BSL)

  • Language support video transcript

    Hello, welcome to our hospital. Our interpreting policy is to ensure that a professional interpreter is always offered to a patient whose first language isn't English, regardless of whether a family member or child is present.

    If you require a language support professional to be present for an appointment that you have here at the hospital, please make contact with the language support services department using the details provided.

    It normally takes five to 10 days to book the services of a language support professional and it would be very helpful if you could provide us with details of your appointment, the support you require and as much notice as possible.

    The Trust can also offer BSL video interpreting, which is based in Accident and Emergency in St Thomas' and the minor injuries unit at Guy's. Please contact language support services to arrange this.

    Language support services are based at Guy's Hospital, second floor, Southwark Wing and can be contacted Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, by emailling or by telephone on 020 7188 8815. Thank you very much for your patience and assistance.
