0844 number for doctor?
These numbers are revenue sharing numbers and generate an income for the doctors surgery and/or the cellular phone service provider and encourage the queue of calls to generate extra revenue.
This practice penalises the poor, elderly and other folks who do not have access to a home phone and must rely on a public phone box and is supplementary un-neccessary burden and cost on illness.
Please petition the affairs of state to stop this at petitions.pm.gov.uk/NGN-use-by-GPs
Answers: The rules for revenue sharing changed in December.
The owner of the 0870 number very soon gets remarkably little, if anything at all in a minute.
