By connecting to a SignLive BSL interpreter you are then able to have a three-way telephone conversation between yourself, interpreter and your GP practice. This could be for anything from making an appointment, checking test results, prescription enquiries or raising a query with your practice.
If you are a BSL user, you can use SignLive to connect via an Interpreter. Just log in to the SignLive app on iOS, Android, or a web browser and find SignLive in the Community Directory. When you call, the Interpreter may confirm who you want to get in touch with.
