Intelligence & Data Services – Fraud Bulletin
We have been informed by Berkshire East CCG of an attempted telephone scam, details of which are below.
A patient from this area has reported that he was contacted by telephone regarding his medication. The caller was male with a slight/moderate Asian accent who said he was calling on the behalf of two local GP practices (one of which was the patient’s own practice).
He mentioned one of the medicines the patient was taking and gave some advice about healthy living. The patient was told that his medication was OK but would work much better with something which “binds it all together”.
PLEASE NOTE THIS STATEMENT IS COMPLETELY FALSE.
The patient said he would speak to his own Doctor, but the caller stated that he had Doctors available to talk to him immediately. The caller said that this product cost £45 but could be bought on the day for a bargain £14.99. The patient reported the incident to his practice. This has also been reported to the Police.
