Fitting CPR Blocker to grandads phone line

I want to be sure I'm not blocking out useful numbers. If I block all withheld numbers, does that mean that the NHS can't get in touch etc?

I work for the Police. All of our external calls are routed as "withheld" - when we come across a number that doesn't accept withheld calls we have a code that we can put in front of the number to remove the withheld status from our call. Or we just use our works mobiles to make the call.

However, you're relying on the agency involved actually making the effort to remove the block or call from another line. I know I do if I need to, can't guarantee others will. If it's something of an important nature I would personally think twice.

Can't you supply the NHS with a mobile number?

Also, most nuisance calls I've seen don't withheld their number anyhow, although I could be wrong.

Well I'll fit it and see if he still gets calls. If he does, I'll go withheld, if not then jobs a good un I guess

What so you're saying they can make a withheld number become non withheld? There's a button on top to block numbers, so when that happens, you can just block the number anyway

Yes, withheld becomes normal.

Nhs won't get through, social services etc. We had the same thing happen but they contact you from works mobiles or ring our mobiles rather than landline :)

Got a nuisance call blocker for elderly mum, she was getting numerous calls a day from scammers, she gave out bank details twice and lost 2 lots of £99, it is the best money we spent and now she only gets the approved numbers we allow, family , friends and known people. With unknown callers some get chopped off straight away which are known nuisance callersand new numbers get option to leave message.
As emro23 says we give out mobile numbers to nurse and Drs or ask them to leave a message on answerphone.
