Re: re: Unless it's the patients using google translate to understand the foreign staff?
Try West Cumbria, AC. We've a great mix of nationalities, skin tones, accents and languages, all with varying levels of English speaking skills. We had a situation last week where my wife took the little one for a checkup as she has a cough, and due to a language mix up, thought the (German) Doctor was giving her antibiotics to placate her, so never bothered filling the prescription. This week, the little one is still unwell, so she went back and saw a different (also foreign, but from Oz) Doctor explained that my 3 month old daughter has a chest infection and needs antibiotics ASAP...
In fact, in my own GP practice, we've got 1 x Australian, 1 x German, 1 x South African, a lovely locum from the Ukraine (who most people will quite happily wait for!) and a blooming Scot!
Personally, I think if they want to come here and look after us, so much the better for us, but given some strong regional accents, it can get confusing at times - I have known people who've had to translate between Glaswegian and Cockney before now!
