Please also find below information about BSL Health Access which was recently launched on 16th April 2020:

BSL Health Access is a brand new, on-demand video remote interpreting service for any public health care requirement in England, Wales and Scotland where access to BSL interpretation is not available.
For many Deaf people, using the English language is not always an effective or safe and appropriate way to communicate important medical advice.

This is why SignHealth and InterpreterNow are working together to provide FREE access to online BSL Interpreters.
The purpose of the service is to facilitate communication in health-related situations such as GP’s, dentists, pharmacies, opticians, NHS hospitals and any health-care related appointments.

The service is available, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it is free! It is a very easy and step by step process.
