A MEDICAL practice in the town has warned its elderly patients to be vigilant for a potential scam.

Danetre Medical Practice, based at Golding Close, put out the warning after a patient was called by someone claiming to be from the practice. The patient reported the incident to the practice after the caller made reference to a medical condition the patient did not have.

The practice’s manager, Ruth Farthing, said: “The Practice would never release any personal information without written consent from a patient.”
