Cervical Screening Program Scam
Posted on 20 May 2020
The Chestnuts Surgery has received reports of a potential scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the NHS call and recall service to advise 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 and should be ignored, genuine NHS recall services will only contact patients via letter.
If in doubt please call the surgery for clarification.
