interpreting service

The Practice will always try to book an interpreter from a local Interpreting Service for booked appointments with the Doctor or Nurse for patients who do not have sufficient understanding of English to ensure a successful consultation.

Please make it clear to the receptionist if you are booking an appointment for someone who will need an interpreter.

Many of our staff speak Gujarati and Hindi.

Please note:

Not all documents need a signature by a doctor, for example passport applications. You can ask another person in a position of trust to sign such documents free of charge.

For Passport and naturalisation applications a GP has to have known the patient or in the case of child the parents for a certain period of time. The GP has the right to refuse if he/she has not known the patient for the defined period of time or if he/she feels they would not be able to recognise the child from the photograph.

Do not expect your GP to process forms overnight: urgent requests may mean that a doctor has to make special arrangement to process the form quickly, and this will cost more. Please be aware that some reports may take more time, as the doctor might have to check the patient’s entire medical records. Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor with the General Medical Council (GMC) or even the police. 

Whilst GPs will always attempt to assist their patients with the completion of forms, for example for insurance purposes, they are not required to do such non-NHS work.

Payment may sometimes be requested in advance.
