Interpreter Services

The Queensland Health Interpreter Service provides interpreters in Queensland Health public facilities in more than 130 languages. Interpreters are provided on-site (face-to-face), via video conference or over the phone.

Interpreters are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are provided at no charge to patients or their families.

Professional interpreters (NAATI accredited or recognised) will always be used unless the situation is urgent and a professional interpreter is unavailable. In these cases, a non-professional interpreter will be used.

Ask a member of our staff to book an interpreter for you.
