Trust earns £80,000 from 0844 number

6th August 2008

The Mid-Yorkshire Hospitals Trust has admitted making more than £80,000 from use of a 0844 telephone number over the last two years.

More than 800 GP practices in England use the revenue-sharing 0844 numbers as well as 15 hospital trusts which use either 0844 or 0845 numbers. The Mid Yorkshire trust replaced its standard rate dialling codes with an 0844 number in May 2006 and now receives 0.0275p for every ten-second call. Patients pay 5p a minute from a landline and more from a mobile telephone.
