Qualified and accredited interpreters are available assist people who do not speak English as a first language. Interpreters can help ensure individuals can understand treatment options available and can make informed decisions about their care.

A range of materials and information sheets have been developed in different languages, in consultation with the community. These resources are available for download. Alternatively, to request these, please speak to GV Health staff to request these.
