You'll have to call O2 to ask https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/Other-Products-and-Services/Coronavirus-Covid-19-Community-Help-and-Su...
I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Yes definitely, @jonsie.  If I don't recognise the caller, I don't answer. If it's a call I should take because it's important, they'll leave a voice mail.

There are some terrible scum out there who will take advantage of this awful situation.

HMRC have put put a warning about it here

https://www.icaew.com/insights/tax-news/2020/mar-2020/covid19-hmrc-warns-about-scam-emails-and-texts 

Although this relates to texts and emails, they are obviously going for calls now!!

But very annoying where a medical practice calls you from a "Number withheld" line - hospital switchboards too are often programmed this way. 

 

The NHS telecoms contracts admins should make this fix a priority, at least to transmit a base CLI that matches the main hospital number or a centralised number.

 

GP practices should tell their telecoms provider the same thing. 

 

Withholding a number is not the best way to mask the direct extension number of individual GP's or Practice Nurse's desk phone details.
