It’s more challenging organising conference interpreting in terms of logistics and required audio equipment that needs setting up.

Medical NHS Interpreting
We provide NHS interpreting services for a wide range of Public Sector and NHS clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. From GP surgeries and Accident and emergency to Dental practices and routine hospital appointments, we can meet all needs. Due to the demanding and vital nature of the work our clients undertake, we do sometimes require our interpreters to be sent out on assignments at short notice. With NHS interpreting as you will be working with vulnerable adults and children we do require a CRB check from ALL of the interpreters interested in this field of work. You can either apply for this with us or on your own. If you already possess a CRB then it must still valid for 3 years.
