Good medical interpreting services reduce DNAs

Weak medical interpretation deters patients with poor English from attending, or yields poor outcomes due to inadequate communication. Most DNAs result from patients not understanding their appointment, forgetting, or reluctance to attend fearing misunderstandings. Our medical and hospital services provide low-cost in-language prompts (text/ call) that both reminds patients and reassures them of competent interpreting at the appointment.

Reassured patients = better outcomes; why capable hospital interpreting matters

Healthcare environments are scary - especially when you can't communicate. Our helpful capable medical and hospital interpreter services ease communication between patient and care professional for more effective quicker consultation, making patients more likely to follow medication and attend future appointments. For the professional more effective appointments release more time to see more patients, and less wasted time improves hospital asset utilisation. Better patient trust, outcomes & user satisfaction means good interpreting brings your practice recommendations and improved rankings.
