Fraud Alert – Screening Text

Public Health England have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.

These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.

The Action Fraud Line has been contacted.

Please do not respond to any such text messages. You can contact the surgery to see when your screening is due or if you have online access you will be able to view you own information.

Be aware that the Practice does send out text messages when you are due for screening but we ask that you book an appointment either online via your own online log in or by calling our normal reception number (0121 472 0129).
