INTERPRETER SERVICES

Our practice provides a health service that accommodates a diverse multicultural population including those with a disability.

Patients who do not speak English or who are more proficient in another language, have the ability to choose a professional translating service or a translator who may be a family member or a friend. Children should not be encouraged to translate on their parent’s behalf. In some situations, it may also not be appropriate for a family member or a friend to translate.  Our practise encourages patients to utilize the free Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) – Doctors Priority Line (1300 131 450) for reasons including:

  • Quality patient care
  • Risk Management
  • Impartiality
  • Professional conduct
  • Confidentiality
  • Efficiency and effectiveness
  • Accuracy
  • Experience

The TIS is a free service available 24hrs a day via telephone at the time of consultation or onsite at the practice if 48hrs notice is given. Further information about the TIS is as available at https://www.tisnational.gov.au/. A free interpreting service is available for patients who are deaf and use Australian Sign Language (AUSLAN). Contact the National AUSLAN Interpreter Booking and Payment Services (NABS) on 1800 246 945 or visit https://www.nabs.org.au/ for further information.
