I'd think you want to contact Language Line - hang on i'll get you a link - as most NHS Trusts have contracts to get interpretors from them (says she, on the basis of knowing 2 Trusts that do!) -

Also you could try contacting the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) or the Human Resources at your local Primary Care Trust.

Find your Primary Care Trust at NHS.uk

Good luck - hope she finds something - our Trust has just made all our interpreters and bilingual co-workers redundant

I think my trust just call on staff who speak other languages / sign lang.
