PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING SCAM
It has come to our attention that patient’s from various practices in the Highland region are receiving calls from someone claiming to be attached to their GP practice. They are being asked all sorts of questions about their medical history and are being asked to sign up to buying a supply of "Vitamins". Worryingly they are being told that if they sign up to this they would no longer have to take their heart or blood pressure medication as they would no longer need it.
If you receive such a call please report this incident to the police. The police have already looked into the telephone number given to a patient and have confirmed that this is indeed a scam run from a foreign call centre.
