Fraud – Patient Alert

We are aware of a high level of fraudulent activity around invitations for Covid-19 vaccines. This is made more complicated by the NHS mass vaccination centres contacting people who might not have had the vaccine yet but do have an appointment booked for it. If you have an appointment booked please ignore any further offers of appointments from the NHS for your first vaccine.

As always remember the NHS will never ask you for your bank details including card, pin or password and never ask you to prove your identity by sending personal documents. If anyone believes they are a victim of fraud or identify theft they should report this directly to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
