NCS | Beware of scams relating to advertising

One of our members has been in contact as follows:

‘I would like to report telephone calls from a telephone number in Blackpool 01253 608072 from a person named Paul, saying he is from Neighbourhood Medical practice Advertising – claiming he is the biggest provider for NHS GP surgeries. He claims the North Beverley Medical Centre is looking to include my services in their web page.

I contacted Sally, the practice manager at this medical centre who assured me this is not the case. On calling Paul back he was extremely abrasive and rude.

Perhaps you could let other members know that these sort of calls need to be checked out before falling prey to paying for something that is a hoax.'
