Pagers and Mobile Phone Numbers

We offer medical students and Residents a pager whilst you are at Bridgepoint or you can add your own pager number to our internal directory.  In this latter case you need to contact Helpdesk to have your number added to the directory used by Switchboard.

If medical trainees wish your mobile phone number to be available to internal callers it is possible to put that number into the internal directory and it will be available in the same way and in the same places that a pager number is available.  You need to be aware that the number will continue to be available for a short period after you leave until the data is updated.  However, the likelihood of being called is small!
