BEWARE OF SCAMMERS

There is heightened coverage around the recent Coronavirus outbreak around the world, which is now severely impacting on the UK and the NHS. 

Unfortunately fraudsters are targeting these circumstances to take advantage of public fear and concern. 

We have been made aware that our patients are receiving phone calls, texts and letters from fraudsters. They will try and obtain your personal details and in particular your NHS number.

Scammers are sophisticated, opportunistic and will try many ways to get the information they want. They often target the vulnerable.

If you are suspicious, do not give any details over the phone, hang up and then ring your GP Practice to confirm.

Test Results

Telephone: 01562 822647

When you take your test you should be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. test_vials

Please telephone the surgery after 11.00 am and speak to a receptionist who will read the health professionals' comments from the screen. It helps if you can tell the receptionist the date the test was done, and the nature of the test, to eliminate the possibility of you being given the wrong results.

Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate. An exception to this policy is allowed if the person has given prior permission for the release of this data, or they are not capable of understanding the results.

It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
