Call Blocking  -  Does your mobile phone accept calls from unknown numbers?

The practice are experiencing difficulty contacting patients who have provided their mobile numbers due to Call Blocking.  Generally this is when patients have provided their number during the emergency triage clinic or when the doctors or administration team need to contact a patient regarding test results etc.

If you are contacting the practice please ensure you provide a number which will receive calls from an unknown number.

Thank you
