Previously, calls made by NHS patients through Patientline phones cost 10p per minute, but that will now rise to 26p.

Patientline, a private company, told the BBC it had invested 160m in the system and needed to recoup its costs and make a profit.

In 2005, the firm was investigated by regulators over its charges, but was cleared of any wrongdoing.

This is absolutely scandelous, 26p per minute just to make a phone call from your hospital bed WTF!!!

They really need to kick this in to touch it seems like its just the public being fleeced as always!

Agreed but if I'm right it costs something like 50 per min
to call in to a loved one or someone you want in hospital.

Its all on that Heads up Display thingy,
Internet, Radio, TV, Telephone.

Hospitals very own "H" Box 360 lol..

Praying on the Sick again.

don't they realise if your sick your not earning? mad
