Cold Calling Health Consultants
We have been made aware that patients are being telephoned by callers claiming to be ‘Joint Consultants’ to discuss their general health. The caller will name check the GP Practice closest to the persons address, giving them the impression that they are working alongside the NHS. There is no such legitimate consultation currently underway and the callers are only seeking to gain patient medical information. Once they have obtained the information the caller will try to sell alternative medicines to the patient and obtain their payment details. If you receive a call and are unsure as to the validity please contact us at Macklin Street to discuss. We would advise patients not to respond to cold callers, and not to give any information/ bank details in response to such calls.
