Language Line

If English isn't your first or preferred language you can still use our service.

NHS 24 uses an interpretation service called Language Line, to support callers who cannot or prefer not to speak English.

Language Line is private, confidential and free to use.

How to use this service

To use Language Line:

  1. call NHS 24 on 111
  2. tell the call handler that you need an interpreter
  3. tell the call handler the name of your preferred language

Once you are connected to an interpreter you will have a three way conversation with NHS 24 to explain the problem in your language and get the help you need.
