#HIW2022 – Translated Patient Information


Today marks the start of #HIW2022. Throughout this week, we will be posting different resources, on a variety of themes .

The theme today is Translated Patient Information.

The main website at Yeovil Hospital, which hosts an assortment of patient information  contains an accessibility tool which not only allows users to change the language of the information presented, but also the font size and colour among other things.

Further information on this really useful tool can be found Here.

A variety of organisations offer general health and wellbeing translated materials:

The World Health Organization – Here you can find information on health in Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian and Arabic.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists – Translated versions of patient-friendly mental health information are available here.
