False Covid text asking patients to order test kits

We have been notified of a text scam that has been sent to patients purporting to be from their Practice. The message advises them that they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Omicron and they must order a test kit using a link within the text. It also asks for 99 pence for postage.

Please note this is NOT from us and we would not ask you to do this. Please be vigilant to avoid providing personal information such as  bank details to fraudsters.
