Ordinarily I'd recommend a read of this VM support article on this very subject, and suggest calling into the 0800 number to discuss your account.
In this case, if you're in hospital I would imagine that making support calls isn't straightforward so I'll escalate your post to VM forum staff - I'm not sure if they can deal with collections-type issues but we'll at least try.
