Sign language

NHS 111 offers a video relay service that allows you to make a video call to a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter. The BSL interpreter will call an NHS 111 adviser on your behalf and you’re then able to have a real-time conversation with the NHS 111 adviser, via the interpreter.

You will need a webcam, a modern computer and a good broadband connection to use this service. Visit NHS 111 BSL interpreter service for more details, including an online user guide.

We cannot provide proof of address for the passport office as we do not take any proof of address or other documentation when a patient is registered with the practice and therefore cannot confirm addresses.

There are many alternatives that can be used.
