Scam Alert

Please be aware of a new scam that we have been alerted of.

We have been informed of a scam telephone call offering pendant alarm support to elderly people for £1.50 per day and asking for their bank details.

They claim to have access to medical records and were nominated by their GP surgery due to their age and health condition. Instances have been reported in our area, as well as nationally.

This is a scam.  Birchwood and Sollershott Surgeries have not nominated any patients for this.  Please do not provide your bank account details if you receive a telephone call of this nature.

If you are concerned about a telephone call being a scam, please contact the Police via their non-emergency number 101.
