Department of Health Contact Number: 0207 210 4850

Call the Department of Health on their telephone contact number 0207 210 4850 to discuss NHS services in your area including hospitals, GP surgeries, mental healthcare and care homes.

The Department of Health is responsible for overseeing and passing legislation on health services within the UK, including the NHS and social care. You can phone their general enquiries contact number 0207 210 4850 to check how changes in government policy will affect your local hospital as well as mental health services in your area. Moreover you can call this helpline to make a serious complaint about medical negligence by a GP or hospital consultant. Similarly if you believe that a change in legislation will compromise your healthcare you may phone this helpline to speak to a relevant minister about your concerns.

Calls to the Department of Health contact number 0207 210 4850 are charged at the same rate as calls to any other UK phone number which is prefixed by an 01 or 02 area code. Therefore you will pay a per-minute rate as well as a set call connection charge which is determined by your specific provider. However if you have free inclusive minutes as part of your landline or mobile tariff you will be able to use these to call the Department of Health for free, though you should confirm this with your network. Please note that if you require the use of textphone services due to a hearing or speech impediment you may use their dedicated textphone helpline 0207 451 7965 which is charged at the same rate as the telephone number. Lines are open 8:30am-5:30pm Monday-Friday, thus you won’t be able to phone them on weekends as well as the majority of UK bank holidays.
