Lifeline Scam

We would like to advise that sadly we have been made aware of a scam on Facebook where someone if purporting to be a Vine Medical Group GP.

The call is along the lines of:

"We are contacting patients over the age of 70 regarding personal alarm fobs."

The caller then tries to get the patient to change alarm fob supplier.

Obviously this is completely untrue and we can confirm there has been NO DATA BREACH from our records. The caller seems to only know the patient's name and address road name, both of which could have been obtained from the Electoral Roll.

If you have been contacted regarding this, we would advise you contact the police.
