College telephone number changes planned

The College's telephone numbers will change this year. In addition to the national numbering changes on 22 April, there will also be changes to the extension numbers for some users at medical campuses.

The College is close to agreeing a major contract with Ericsson for the provision of a range of communications services. As part of the deal, Ericsson will be installing a new communications infrastructure, which will include state-of-the-art telephone exchanges across the College's estate. New switches are already operating at Silwood and St Mary's campuses. The next phase of the project will include switches at the remaining medical campuses and this will mean a change of extension numbers on these sites.

Discussions are underway with Ericsson and the College's campus managers regarding the timing of the changes. We hope to report fully in the next edition of IC Reporter. For further information about the national number change, contact
