If Patienline is intending on getting it self a bad name and going out of businesses it could not be making a better job of it.

How much are Patienline's top people being paid to make such a mess of a business that is there to help sick people ?

Patientline is indeed a very bitter pill to swollow when you are ill in Hospital. I spent over £50 in one week calling my family that live only a few miles away. My elderly Mother spent more than she could afford - it is all very upsetting.

My father was extreemly sick in hospital and I had no way of visiting him because I was over 200 miles away, fortunately going through the patientline system I was actually able to speak to him direct in stead of getting a generic response from the nursing staff. How much would I have paid for this service?... priceless

Perhaps Anonymouse should get a job with Patientline, or perhaps he or she already has one.

I agree that the concept is a good one but there is no reason why Patientline should charge high tariffs. The issue is cost.
