Bogus call warning from Health and Social Care Board


The Health and Social Care Board are reminding older people to beware of bogus telephone callers, pretending to be from their GP surgery or local hospital.

Health and Social Care staff across Northern Ireland have been receiving reports of such callers contacting individuals by phone, trying to sell health care products and to obtain bank or credit card details.

These callers usually say they are calling on behalf of, or with the consent of the individual’s GP in order to reassure the potential victim that the call is legitimate.

Any scam call should be reported to Action Fraud, either by calling 0300 123 2040, or you can use the online reporting method by visiting the website
