Important Notice – Scam Message

Please be aware of a text scam being sent to patients claiming to be from their GP Practice.

The message advises that they have been a 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 aware that GP Practice would not text patients in this way seeking payment for test kits. Patients should be vigilant to avoid providing personal information such as bank details to fraudsters.
