Online Interpreter Workshop

We are pleased (but not for all of course!) that our Working as an Online Interpreter Workshop scheduled for Monday 31st October, 2016 is now fully subscribed.

We are now planning additional workshops to take place in the East, North East and Highlands starting early in the new year.

As we know technology is forever advancing as with access to civil and civic society for Deaf BSL users similarly increasing – technology is now playing an important part for accessibility and equality for BSL users – with video interpreting now with us as part of everyday life/living (opposed to being there in the future!) And it aint going away!!!

NHS GG&C – VRI Service

click-connect-postGround breaking news from NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (GG&C) – Video Remote Interpreter service (VRI) now available for Deaf BSL patients using Sign Language Interaction’s SLi-NOW! on-line interpreter services is now available.

Working with the Corporate Inequalities Manager, Jac Ross, there are 6 Chromebooks (small laptops) that contact directly to our on-line interpreter service, providing access to communication where and when needed.

How does it work?

The ‘clinician’ (doctor, nurse etc.) will contact the online service using the Chromebook, the Deaf BSL user will see the on-line interpreter on screen and the clinician can speak and hear the interpreter – Simple!

Where is it available?

The service will be available from the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) (New Glasgow Sothern General).

Initially Chromebooks will be available at:

  • Patient Information Centre (PIC)
  • A&E
  • Wards

however, with Chomebooks being so portable, can be made available at other NHS GG&C hospitals/ facilities.

When is it available?

We are pleased to provide cover for this unique service on a 24hour basis
