NHS England has been alerted to a recent incident where a patient was contacted by someone claiming to work at Bradford on Avon Health Centre in Wiltshire. The caller stated that the patient’s prescription was ready for collection and could be delivered if debit / credit card payment details were provided. The patient was further advised that he needed to pay an additional cost following a change that had been made to the prescription.
If patients experience any similar requests for payment or have any concerns that they may have been targeted, please contact the police via Action Fraud on telephone number 0300 123 2040 or text phone 0300 123 2050. For further details on Action Fraud, please visit www.actionfraud.police.uk

We have recently updated our appointment system, which we hope will improve the service we offer. The Doctors have dedicated slots for ‘on the day’ and for ‘routine’ phone calls. Our experienced Nurse Practioners are also available from 8.30am to 6pm daily, for help with urgent medical matters. Alongside emergency and routine appointments, the GP’s are also available daily for telephone consultations.
The reception team will try to make the most appropriate appointment for you depending upon the nature of your problem.
