Can I get information in other languages?

To get information on the web in other languages  you can go to the links page of our Equal Access to Health microsite, visit the NHS 24 website translations page or go to www.multikulti.org.uk/en/health for some useful leaflets.  If you need more help then please contact us using the help form and we will try to provide what you need or help you to find it.
