1. Can I request the following please, who does the CCG use for Translations and Interpreter’s. What named individual is responsible for deciding this?
NHS Calderdale CCG has previously used translation services on an ad hoc basis, but does not directly commission translation services. Translation services are provided through a co-commissioning arrangement with NHS England which commenced on 1st April 2016.
Previous translation services that have been used on an ad hoc basis have been provided by:
- Leeds Society for Deaf and Blind People
- Language Line
- Pearl Linguistics
- Inspired Service
There is no named individual within the CCG responsible for deciding which services are used.
