NHS Scotland Competency Framework for Interpreting
This framework will help NHS staff, interpreting providers and interpreters ensure interpreting is carried out effectively to these patients and to continue to improve the quality of interpreting provided.
The framework provides a clear, precise and simple guidance for those working with patients with preferred communication other than spoken English. As services and agreements differ across each geographical area in Scotland, this document can be adapted to include local information relevant to interpreting.
