We understand that it is extremely difficult to get through but our telephone lines are manned at all stages during surgery hours. When you ring and get the answering message you are put in a queue (maximum two people in queue at any stage – if you get an engaged ring tone therefore two people are already in the queue waiting to be answered.).
