It has been brought to our attention that some patients, particularly elderly patients, are being telephoned by someone wishing to make an appointment to visit and discuss the patients' long term conditions and giving the impression they are part of, or working with, the NHS. We would stress that any details relating to a patient's health or otherwise have not come from the practice and would advise patients to contact the Police if they feel threatened in any way by these calls or companies.
‘Start the Conversation’, a campaign funded by the Scottish Government, raises awareness of the importance of having a Power of Attorney granted to a trusted relative or friend. Check out www.mypowerofattorney.org.uk - this website provides valuable help and information.
