Suspicious Callers

The practice has recently been advised of an incident whereby a person claiming to be working for Morpeth Health Centre was telephoning patients and then trying to sell rosehip seed extract and tries to gain patients bank details.

This has been reported to the Police and NHS Protect (Counter Fraud) but we would encourage patients to be on their guard.

Can the practice assure patients that we do not share your medical records or prescribing details with 3rd parties and would never ask anyone to contact patients on behalf of the practice. We would however like to encourage patients that if they do receive any such calls, to advise the practice and we will report to NHS Protect and the Police.
