Medical interpreter dispatch service free campaign

June 19, 2014

We are temporarily carrying out our interpretation dispatch service for foreign Kitakyushu (and the surrounding area) residents who have need of medical facilities. Be sure to take advatage of this campaign while it's still available!

Do you have any of the following problems when you see the doctor?

Perhaps you feel confident conversing in Japanese but worry you can't correctly describe your symptoms?

Perhaps you are worried about how different Japan's medical system will be to your home country's?

If this sounds at all like you, please talk to your doctor about the KIA's medical interpreter dispatch *free campaign*!

Note: All interpreters are at or above the regulation language skill, and undergo regular training and self-study to expand their skill and
knowledge of medical science and interpretation ethics, and have passed screening to hold their position. Please be assured that your
privacy will be upheld.
