iCAN Warning: Cervical Screening Text Message scam
Halton Trading Standards have been made aware of scam regarding cervical screening. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the 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.
We would advise all patients to be wary of text messages and phone calls and to call the care provider if they have any concerns about their authenticity.
