Watch out for scams

Watch out for online scams

With so much information out there about Covid-19 and the new variant Omicron, it's all the more important to make sure that you're only getting information from trusted and official sources. 

Unfortunately scammers are trying to impersonate organisations such as the NHS to get people to "apply now for Omicron PCR test to avoid restrictions."

Please be aware that these communications are FAKE and that they are likely an attempt to gain access to your personal information, including bank details.
