on 15th October 2014, I rang the main hospital phone number - 0191 482 0000 - after the initial recorded greeting all I got was the phone ringing and then after a time I was cut-off. This happened continuously between 07.30am and 10.45am. At that point I decided that it would be easier to drive to the hospital ( 18 miles ) and make my query in person.
