Translating and Interpreting Services

The PALS Team can provide access to trained interpreters to support communication with patients who use sign language, are deaf, blind or partially sighted, are non-English speakers, or for people for whom English is a second language. The ward/department where the appointment is to take place will book the appointment in a timely and sensitive manner to enable the patient to be involved in decision making over his/her care.

Our staff at Salisbury District Hospital have long been well regarded for the quality of care and treatment they provide for our patients and for their innovation, commitment and professionalism. This has been recognised in a wide range of achievements and it is reflected in our award of NHS Foundation Trust status. This is afforded to hospitals that provide the highest standards of care.
