Interpretation services are provided by DA Languages.

Face-to-Face, including BSL services, and telephone interpretation is booked through their DA Link portal. Each provider has been contacted by DA Languages and provided with the Client User Guide.

NHS England finances the use of these interpretation services.

Telephone interpretation should be the default requirement unless there are extenuating patient circumstances that warrant the use of face-to-face interpretation.

Please note that although a translation service is described in the User Guide this is not funded by NHS England.

Should you have any queries, DA Languages can be contacted at: admin@dalanguages.co.uk or telephone: 0161 928 2533
