Are you a Pharmacist/Team member who speaks a language other than English?

Would you be willing to support a colleague pharmacist by translating a non-English spoken language to enable them to provide a pharmaceutical service in a Community Pharmacy in the Humber region?

The LPC have previously been called upon for advice in sourcing support to enable a local pharmacist to provide a service for a patient who could not speak English. This has highlighted that there is a difficulty in providing translation services within community pharmacy that enable a pharmacist to make the necessary clinical decision regarding the supply of a medicine.
