The Provincial Language Service (PLS) provides both face-to-face and phone interpreting for women coming to BC Women's who speak limited or no English. We provide highly qualified and certified medical and community interpreters. All PLS interpreters meet and follow the standards for professional health care interpreting.
Interpreter services are available to help you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Remember that family and friends still have a role in interpreter-assisted appointments. It is the same role a family member or friend would play when both parties speak English - one of supporting you.
A selection of our pamphlets have been translated in Chinese, Punjabi, Spanish, or Vietnamese. Please ask your care provider for further information.
