CGH telephone outage : Wednesday 23rd March 8.30pm – 12.30am.


A planned upgrade of the telephone system at Cheltenham General Hospital (CGH) will take place on Wednesday 23rd March from 8.30pm – 12.30am. During this time the main telephone lines both in and out of CGH will be down.

However, each ward has access to an emergency telephone which will continue to operate as normal throughout this period. Members of the public who want to contact wards at CGH directly during this period are advised to contact the main switchboard on 0300 422 2222 who can transfer calls to wards via the emergency telephones. Alternatively patients may be reached via their personal mobile devices. Patients are advised to keep their mobile devices on silent as a courtesy to other patients on the ward.

Thank you in advance for your continued patience and understanding.
