Noticeboard

13th June 2017

We wish to bring to your attention that some practices have received bogus calls purporting to be from 'the practice' and asking them questions about medical conditions and current medications.

When the patients ask for further clarification from the caller they are told “Your Health Centre” and in one case the Health Centre was named.  The patients queries resulted in the call being ended abruptly.

PLEASE REMAIN VIGILANT - IF YOU ARE CONCERNED PLEASE END THE CALL AND CONTACT RECEPTION.

IMPORTANT PATIENT INFORMATION
