Interpreting and Translation Commitment
Lincolnshire CCG is committed to ensuring that it is inclusive of the whole population in all its activities. To support this, the CCG commits to ensure both equality of access to services for all seldom heard groups and to ensure that the resources needed are available such as interpreters.
The CCG is registered with Language Line Services for GP Practices to access translation services. This service is free for practices to use as it is funded by the CCG. However, the CCG is unable to fund any other services used by GP Practices for translation. Language line is accessed by dialling 0845 310 9900 option 1.
The CCG does not have a permanent contract with any organisations but a range of interpreting and translation services can be arranged by contacting Lincolnshire County Council via email. BS_TranslationService@lincolnshire.gov.uk
