084 number dropped by two NHS bodies

1st December 2010

A NHS trust and the Summary Care Record Information Line have made the decision to scrap the premium rate 084 telephone service.

Mid Essex Hospitals NHS trust will return to a 01 number and the SCR line has already transferred to 030 number. Graham Ramsay, chief executive of Mid Essex Hospitals, said: "We recognise that using 0844 numbers has caused problems for some members of the public and our patients, so I am pleased that we have made this decision. It will make contacting the hospital easier and cheaper for everyone involved."
