Government Consultation on the use of 084 telephone numbers to call the NHS

January 15, 2009 5:57 PM

The Department of Health is holding a public consultation on whether it should prohibit the use of 084 numbers to access services provided by the NHS.

This consultation booklet is available in GP surgeries and online at http://www.dh.gov.uk/en/Consultations/Liveconsultations/DH_091879

The Department of Health is keen to hear from:

  • people who have experience of using 084 numbers to call services provided by the NHS;
  • people who use a local number to call services provided by the NHS;
  • GPs, practice managers, pharmacists, hospitals and other organisations providing services for the NHS that use 084 numbers;
  • NHS organisations that do not use 084 numbers;
  • the telecommunications industry; and
  • other interested parties.

The consultation closes on 31st March 2009.
