A caller may phone you and suggest that they are calling you on behalf of your Doctor or local Hospital. They may even mention the name of your surgery to convince you that the call is genuine. THIS IS A SCAM CALL as your GP will NEVER give your contact details to any company trying to sell you something.
Remember, it is important to hang up straight away and NEVER hand over your card details.
