Language Line Services have been awarded a position on the NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) framework contract for interpreting and translation services.

The NHS framework enables any public sector organisation to secure language support under a single contractual agreement that guarantees both the quality and value for money of the services provided.

The framework has been designed to incorporate a premium quality interpreting option, underpinned by the utilisation of NRPSI level interpreters so as to provide the criminal justice sector with a robust and viable alternative to existing provision within the sector.

Language Line Services have been providing language solutions to the emergency services and criminal justice sector for over 20 years and have a wealth of experience in tailoring these solutions to meet the individual requirements that often arise. The organisation currently supplies language solutions to all police forces in England, Wales and Scotland, including NRPSI based face-to-face interpreting services to forces across the South East of England.

Simon Yoxon-Grant, Sales & Marketing Director of Language Line Services said, “We are delighted to once again be awarded a position on this framework. He continued, “We have proven our ability to provide a high quality, robust and secure service, and the flexible NRPSI option in this new framework positions it as a real alternative to existing arrangements”.

Yoxon-Grant acknowledges the challenges faced by organisations across the public sector, particularly in front-line policing and adds, “Our ability to deliver improvements in efficiency and resulting savings across countless police forces in the UK illustrates our understanding of how to adapt our service to meet the needs of those we work with”.

The NHS Shared Business Services contract has a history of delivering consistent value and offers public sector organisations a simple, robust, and contractually compliant means of procuring language services from a pre-approved list of organisations without incurring the significant expense associated with a dedicated procurement exercise.
