Email Scam

Date: 
Sunday, April 13, 2014

We have received a warning from the Local medical Committee about a particularly unpleasant email scam that is currently doing the rounds.

It appears that patients are being emailed with scam blood results, told that they are abnormal and that they must see their GP urgently. The email claims to be from a doctor.

Whilst most patients will see this as a scam, it is nevertheless distressing and disturbing, particularly for patients who have had blood tests and awaiting results.

Glenpark Medical Practice does not currently use email to communicate results except by specific prior agreement with patients. Any emails from us never ask for personal details, or log in details.
