0844 number dropped by Trust

1st October 2008

The 0844 numbers recently introduced by University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust have been dropped following complaints that it could leave patients out of pocket.

The Trust introduced the 0844 number as a single contact for Glenfield, Leicester General and the Royal Infirmary hospitals, early in September, though it opted not to make revenue from it. However, patient groups still objected that it would not be free for callers using some popular landline packages or mobiles and the trust has now decided to use an 0300 number instead.
