Cold Calling Advice
This advice sheet from NHS England South (SW) has been produced with the kind permission of the National Fraud and Cyber Crime Reporting Centre
Recently in the South West, NHS England South SW have received a number of reports from GP Practices regarding patients who have been “cold called” by representatives of various companies.
These callers (both by phone and in person) seem to know the patient’s medical history and sometimes say that this information has been obtained from the GP Practice.
No GP Practice will ever divulge your medical history.
If you receive such a call please report it to:
ActionFraud either via the online fraud reporting form or make your report by calling 0300 123 2040.
