If the patient is unable to speak English, it is important for an advocate to be present. This may be family member or friend. If no-one is available, we can book a professional advocate.
Resources for the advocacy service are limited and appointments may be delayed due to the difficulty in booking the advocate. If you do need to book an advocate please contact the advocacy service on: 0207 683 4024.
