The HSCB has been made aware of instances on 23/24 August where 3 patients of a Belfast GP practice received text messages indicating that their registration with the practice was about to lapse and that they should phone the number provided within the message. This was a mobile number which, when called, was "not recognised".

The Belfast practice does not currently use text messaging to communicate with patients and has no idea who is contacting the patients or how their phone numbers were obtained.

If you know of any similar incidents please report them to the practice as we also do not use text messaging to contact patients.
