I got a letter from the House of Commons this morning, it looks like my MP is taking up my cause.
I have copies of letters she has sent to my medical practice and the local medicines management and will update me when she has a reply.

"The regulations came into force on 1 April 2010 and mean that calls to the practice should be no more expensive than the cost of calls to an equivalent geographical number (eg 020 or 0203). This includes the cost of making a call from mobile phones."

I think I will start looking for a new doctor, before my current one books me in for a colonoscopy!

Just had a call from my MP's office - the problem was almost raised in the house of commons during PMs question time!
But my MP decided to ask about the lack of tax coming from Starbucks instead - fair enough!

But I have been asked if I would talk to the local rag if they decide to do a piece on it!

VICTORY!!

My doctor is changing their number from a premium rate to a standard local rate.

Also my MPs office did some digging and found 9 other practices in the borough with premium rate numbers - all of which will be getting a letter from her asking them to change it.

Suspect my surgery must have a notice on their phone "private, long duration outgoing calls only", one day tried for 4 hours to make an appointment for an elderly relative. Phone was ringing, then 'engaged' put a ring when free on, phone never answered. Eventually went in to reception, of the 2 staff 1 was permanently on the phone.
It's these people who are going to bring efficiency and improvements to the NHS under Tory plans

No all surgeries are like that. I hate going with a vengeance but in fairness when I had to concede defeat over a cyst on my back I got straight through on the Friday and was booked in Monday and operated on the same evening.

Just a shame they cannot stick to sorting out what you want then moving on to the next though. Half the reason I left it so late was trying to avoid the inevitable arguement when they start wanting to know how much you drink, what you weigh and a dozen other questions that have nothing to do with the job in hand and are not about to get answered.
