Medical Interpreting

The majority of MaryFaith’s interpreting work takes place in a medical environment including hospital outpatients and consultants appointments, day surgical procedures and visits to local GP surgeries. She is keenly aware of the significance and impact of clear communication with regard to diagnosis and treatment.

Prior to redirection to interpreting and work with deaf people, MaryFaith was studying for her nursing degree. She is able, therefore, to apply her knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, her experience within the environment of doctors’ offices and hospitals to her work as an interpreter. Her MA academic work in the ‘specialist settings’ module focused on the medical domain and MaryFaith has developed a specialism in interpreting in this area.

Testimonials

I am an electronic notetaker. I met MaryFaith three years ago when we worked together with the same university client (last year the student successfully graduated with their degree). I’m always impressed with her professionalism, experience, and client-centred approach. It’s a pleasure working with her and delivering good results.

MaryFaith is diligent and has an excellent work ethic. She brings a balance of both relevant knowledge and skills to interpreting domains and types of work she undertakes. It is always a pleasure to co-work with MaryFaith, she is very supportive, knowledgeable and professional.
