Cervical Screening Scam Texts

Public Health England have received reports of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the smear 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. Action Fraud has been notified.

Could we ask patients to be alert of the potential scam and if they are in doubt to contact the surgery.
