British Sign Language service
NHS England’s Customer Contact Centre launches British Sign Language service
British Sign Language (BSL) users are now able to get in touch with NHS England’s Customer Contact Centre using a video call supported by a BSL interpreter. The new BSL service, operated by InterpreterNow, is available whenever the contact centre is open. The service can be accessed using a PC or laptop equipped with a webcam. A free app is also available for smartphone and tablet users. This technology will enable BSL users to communicate with NHS England directly and independently – without having to rely on friends or family members.
For more information please see the InterpreterNow website at this link for more information and to download the app.
