Scam Text Messages




We would like to remind patients of the need to be vigilant when receiving text messages relating to Covid-19 and specifically PCR testing.

There are still some scam messages circulating that are requesting personal information and payment details. Please do not respond to these messages as they are not legitimate communications from the NHS or our practice.

As with all scams, our advice is if you are asked for personal details, it will not be legitimate and should be deleted immediately. 


Advice can be sought here if you think you have been a victim of a scam text or email:
