22nd April - BEWARE OF SCAMMERS

 There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS. Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern. 

We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls, texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.

 Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.

 If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.

6th April UPDATE -  A very small number of our patients will already have been identified as being high risk. They will have received a text message or letter from the NHS in the past week.

Those patients should stay at home for 12 weeks.

NHS Digital are currently working to identify the additional patients who will also be advised to stay home for 12 weeks. We anticipate this information imminently but currently we are not able to confirm which patients will fall into this group.  

Until we receive further guidance, we are unable to issue supportive letters regarding potential high-risk patients.

Our advice to all our patients is to stay home, apart from essential shopping, essential work and one form of exercise each day. In all circumstances keep a 2-metre distance from other people and wash your hands regularly.

Take care, stay at home, protect our NHS and save lives
