Translated Resources

The following documents can be downloaded:

Pro forma Letters

It is always a good idea to confirm an appointment made over the phone in writing. People often mishear the date and can easily forget if they have a lot going on in their lives. These letters have proved really useful. We also use a mobile phone to text appointment times to people. This is cheaper than a stamp and very effective although you can’t put as much information in a text.
