Important Patient Information – possible cervical screening text message scam

The surgery has received today reports of a possible scam. Women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise that they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details. These messages are NOT from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme

If you should receive such a text message please contact the surgery on 01257 513970
