HC Deb 12 July 1996 vol 281 c337W
Ms Harman

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidelines are in place for translation of NHS leaflets into languages other than English. [37025]

Mr. Horam

The Department of Health produces a substantial quantity of health information translated into languages other than English. Material is targeted at ethnic minority groups either if it is specific to them or where it is every citizen's right to have access to the information. The patients charter and "The Health of the Nation and You" are examples of publications translated into ethnic minority languages.
