Do you need an interpreter?

CCMB Language Access Program

  • When you are called about an appointment you can ask to have an interpreter attend.
  • This needs to be arranged before coming to the cancer centre for your appointment.
  • Interpreters are available free of charge for many languages


 

  • Do you want to better understand your or your family member's cancer treatment?
  • Are you not sure how to deal with the side effects of treatment?
