Area Code 076 - Information and activity

All phone numbers with the 076 prefix are reserved for Pagers, except for those that start with 07624 that are used by mobile phone numbers in the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

Pagers are nowadays mostly used by hospitals because of their reliability and low maintenance cost. They also work where cellphones won’t - particularly in some parts of hospitals such as those built for X-ray scanning that don’t have service. That’s where pagers come in handy.

So, if you get contacted by a pager, it is most likely that it is the NHS, although some people still use pagers for the same reasons as the NHS.

There are not many pagers left in the UK, however, most people who still use pagers don’t buy the device, but rather pay a monthly fee and ‘lease’ it. These fees vary but are generally in the £5 to £15 range.
