Notice Board

Scam Warning

Counter Fraud has been made aware of an attempted scam involving a patient registered at a NHS Scotland Medical Practice. The patient registered for services using the Ask My GP Portal, understood to be a cloud based secure portal to assist GP Practices with workflow and facilitate communication directly with clinical teams. After submitting a request via the portal, the patient received an unsolicited email from a company called “Just Answer”. The email is understood to have contained a link to a medical questionnaire which the patient clicked on. The patient was then asked to input bank details.
This service does NOT require payment for NHS treatment, and patients who use this system are advised never to disclose bank details to any third parties.

Aggressive and Abusive Behaviour

Over the past six months our admin staff have been receiving increasing levels of abuse.
This has now reached an unacceptable level resulting in one of our staff leaving.
We operate a zero tolerance policy to aggressive/abusive behaviour.
Anybody abusing our staff will be removed from our list with no further warning.

Domestic Abuse

Domestic abuse can take many forms. It’s not just physical abuse, it also includes coercive and controlling behaviour. If you are, or someone you know is experiencing violent, abusive or controlling behaviour, help is available. Controlling behaviour takes away your choices in life and the things that make you, you. It can happen to anyone in an intimate relationship. You don’t need to live with your partner to experience domestic abuse. It’s important to talk to someone if you think you are experiencing domestic abuse. If you’re not ready to report it, you can still seek support. To speak in confidence call Scotland’s Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0800 027 1234. For more info visit safer.scot
