We have had a report from another practice in the area of a scam whereby a patient received a call from the mobile number 07845 543520 (Google confirms that this is a number used for scams).
The caller claimed to be from that GP surgery. She spoke in broken English, gave a Witney number that was not the surgery number and there were babies crying in the background.
The caller knew the patient’s name, that the patient was registered at the surgery, that the patient was waiting for some results, and the patient thinks that the caller also said the name of the patient’s doctor.
The patient was told that the caller had been asked by the doctor to give the patient the results and that the patient would need to log onto a computer to receive them.
If you receive any calls of this nature please hang up and call the surgery immediately on 01865 881206 or 01993 881330.
