Patient Update – Scam Messages

We are aware of a scam text message being sent to patients purporting to be from their GP practice.

The message advises you that you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Omicron and that they must order a test kit using a link within the text. The link then asks for a payment of £0.99 for postage.

Please be assured we would never send out a message in this way seeking payment for anything. Please always be vigilant to avoid providing personal information such as bank details to fraudsters.
