We are aware of reports that some women have received text messages, claiming to be from the call and recall service, advising patients that they are due for screening.
The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.
Please be advised that the messages are NOT from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme and are currently being investigated as a possible scam.
The Action Fraud Line has been contacted.
If you suspect that you may be overdue for a screening, please contact your GP directly, who will be happy to discuss this with you.
