Creating a diversion over 0844

I have to agree with the Government about these 0844 numbers ('GPs must tell patients about 0844 call costs'). However, perhaps the Department of Health should look at its side of the deal.

At night and weekends we divert our phones to NHS24, and the number generates NHS24 money as it is an 0845 number.
