GP Telephone Scam Alert

The police have become aware of a telephone scam targeted at elderly members of the local community.

The scam involves placing a call, pretending to be calling from the target’s local GP surgery and making an appointment to discuss the person’s mobility needs. At this appointment the person is pressured into purchasing mobility aids which are both incredibly expensive and offer little benefit.

Remember:

Your surgery will never call you in order to sell you items you haven’t asked for.

It you receive a call of this nature please report it by calling 101.
