NHS Scam Alert

Latest scam alert from KCC


We have received reports of scam phone calls from people claiming to work on behalf of the NHS selling medical equipment agreed by their Doctor.

In one report the victim paid £85 for a blood pressure machine which never arrived and their Doctor confirmed they did not make the recommendation.    

If you receive one of these calls hang up and contact your GP surgery on a number you know to be true.

Never disclose personal information such as bank details to someone over the telephone, no matter who the caller claims to be.

You can reduce the number of unsolicited sales and marketing calls you receive by registering your telephone number with the Telephone Preference Service.  It’s a free service and only takes a minute to register.
