Are you a registered Pharmacist who speaks a different language other than English?

July 19, 2018

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 recently 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.

We would therefore like your help (if you are willing) to collate a list of Pharmacists and the additional language/s you may speak, so that you could be called upon to support a local pharmacist ask the right questions and receive a clear reply to enable them to make a clinical decision.

Your contact details will be contained on a list along with the additional language/s that you speak. These details will be used by the LPC only and never shared without your verbal or written consent.

The LPC has a SOP which maintains compliance with GDPR and can share this as appropriate.

If you are happy to provide your details please fill in the form below:
