Remote pacing and cardiac monitoring devices – SCAM

We have received details of a particularly cruel phishing scam which is circulating at the moment and affecting people with remote pacing and cardiac monitoring devices.

A patient appears to have been the victim of an opportunistic phishing scam, and paid £167 over the telephone using his debit card to the caller.

The caller stated that his “box/equipment” was not working due to “Dust”. He was offered the opportunity to replace it and at the same time offered the option of purchasing either a five year warranty for £140 or lifetime warranty for £167. As the patient was due to have a routine remote check on his device by the Pacemaker clinic, the patient believed that the call was legitimate and therefore paid £167 to the caller. The patient and his partner were subsequently suspicious, so they called the Pacemaker clinic a few hours later to check if the problem had been fixed. The clinic explained it was not a call from the hospital or from the manufacturer of the equipment.

Clinics and device companies would never ask for personal details or charge for services.

GP Registrars

Taunton Road Medical Centre is approved for post-graduate training of doctors in General Practice (called Registrars). We usually have two GP Registrars attached to the Practice for periods of up to one year. They are fully qualified, experienced doctors who are well able to deal with your clinical problems with the benefit of recent hospital experience. They are with us to gain additional knowledge of family medicine before becoming GPs in their own Practices.

As we are a training Practice you may be asked to allow your consultation with a doctor to be video-recorded. This is done solely for training purposes; the tapes remain confidential and will be destroyed after use. You have the right to refuse either before, during or after your consultation.
