Wanted, Interpreter: I am in need of an interpreter to accompany me to the hospital in Velez on Monday 24th September when I am having a cataract operation at this point I am not certain of the time. I may not even need one but I cannot rely on the interpreters in the hospital as they are so busy and so not always available immediately and the surgeon will not hold up his operations to wait for one.
I would appreciate a fixed rate rather than an hourly one as I have no idea how long I will be there.
I am in Torrox Campo but can meet at the hospital obviously I will not be driving myself. Please reply giving costs involved.
