Telephone Scam – Please Be Cautious


We have been made aware of a telephone scam currently going around where patients are being called from a ‘Healthcare Centre’ regarding their medical issues.

If The Adam Practice or any other NHS organisation tries to contact you, we will always identify ourselves and the reason for the call.

If you are unsure of who you are speaking to, do not give any of your personal details.

You can call the practice on the main line number (NOT using a telephone number the caller provides) and we will confirm if this was us.
