Scams - BE VIGILANT!
There have been instances where (what we would assume to be) private companies have contacted patients and given the impression that they have NHS permission to do so. In fact they have hoped to sell some sort of medical equipment to you.
Permission has not been obtained from the practice and we have not released your medical information.
Please be vigilant and absolutely sure who you are speaking to before divulging information about yourself. You should of course contact the police if you feel at all threatened and if you keep us updated, we will happily liaise with the Board in the hope that we can protect others from scammers.
Home blood pressure monitors no longer available.
Unfortunately, due to equipment not being returned to us, we are no longer able to provide blood pressure monitors for home measurements.
Telephone calls are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
