Research said 0845 calls could be expensive for some phone users

Cornwall's NHS Primary Care Trust has abandoned using an 0845 telephone number for its main reception.

Health bosses said it had been replaced with a local area code-based number - 01726 627800 - which was in line with national guidance for public bodies.

The trust said research showed 0845 calls could be expensive for mobile, call-box and non-BT line users.

The 0845 number now has a message directing callers to the new number.
