Hi, I work for NHS Direct in England and when we get a call we have to greet "good morning this is NHS Direct ...." today I was checking the pronunciation of some words and I was surprise with the pronunciation direct, in the dictionary I've just found "direct" like we read but here in England everybody says "dairect", is it wrong??? So everybody is wrong???

yep, both are fine. Here in the states the 'i' is pronounced like the 'i' in 'bird'. The 'ai' pronunciation sounds more ... shall we say ... sophisticated. Actually, a lot of British accents sound sophisticated to Americans, and the rest are just difficult to understand.
In Fact, Silzivitorio I've seen both pronuntiation from North American, maybe "dɪ'rekt" e "də'rekt" are more common, but if you use the other way of saying you will do great. By the way, in this case saying one of the options you will be completely understood.
