### Patient Alert ###

NHS England has brought to our attention an issue which originated in the Wigan Borough area but it may also be happening further afield.

Evidence has come to light which suggests a company called Vivid Lifestyle having been calling vulnerable patients and using persuasive sales techniques to talk them into buying unnecessary and expensive supplements and medications, which has included obtaining bank details from the patients for payments.  The company do in fact supply health supplements; however NHS England would always question any medication bought without a prescription from a GP/Doctor.

We would like to reiterate to all patients to be aware.  Do not provide any such company with personal or bank details.  Be extremely cautious if buying health supplements or medication over the internet or via phone as you never know what you are receiving.

If any patients have provided such details, NHS England is advising that the patient contacts their bank(s) immediately and requests that their Fraud Department put a block on the account for any future payments.  If any patients wish to take this matter further they are able to report the incident to their local Police.

Patient access online is available here (This is suitable for both Meadowside and former Strawberry Gardens Medical Practice patients).
