NOTICE – POTENTIAL TELEPHONE SCAM

Somerset residents are being asked to be aware of a potential telephone scam. It follows reports to Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) about people receiving unsolicited phone calls offering to sell vitamins. The callers often claim that they are phoning from or on behalf of the consumers GP surgery. The consumer is asked about their health and medication and advised to purchase specific health supplements such as Omega 7 Sea Buckthorn Oil.

Andy Knight, Somerset CCG’s Counter Fraud Manager, says that "GP surgeries would never contact patients in this way and try to sell vitamins, drugs or other supplements. Consumers who buy from such cold callers risk paying inflated prices for supplements that are of little or no benefit to their particular health issue. Anyone contacted in this way should end the call immediately and should not disclose personal information or bank account details."

Anyone receiving such a telephone call is advised to report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or online at www.actionfraud.police.uk.

People can help to reduce the number of cold calls they receive by registering with the telephone preference service by calling 0845 070 0707 or online at www.tpsonline.org.uk

Text messaging service

We have temporarily suspended the lab results messaging service to mobile phones from November 2014 and hope to have it up and running again when software issues have been resolved. It is still possible to receive appointment reminders by text.
