We wish to bring to your attention that some practices in the Northern area have reported that their patients have received bogus calls purporting to be from the practice and asking them questions about medical conditions and current medications.
When the patients asks for further clarification from the caller they are told “Your Health Centre” and in one case the Health Centre was named. The patients queries resulted in the call being ended abruptly.
Therefore we would ask patients to:
- Remain vigilant
- Continue to report any bogus caller incidents to the Practice and to the PSNI.
