COVID-19 updates and guidance

Our COVID-19 updates and guidance have now been moved to a dedicated COVID-19 updates and guidance page.

POTENTIAL SCAM

We have been made aware of a potential scam that members have reported to us.

Some members have been contacted by a supposed member of the Hawks (DPCI) who does not indicate exactly the reason for his call, but states that it is prudent for the practitioner to meet and speak to him, or else they risk being arrested or having a raid take place on their practice – both of which could be averted if they agree to the private meeting.

We suspect that the reported incidents may have involved the same individual, and know that they have taken place in a reasonably short space of time, although the geographical spread of the members involved is not restricted to a particular city or province.

Should you receive a telephone call of this nature from anyone, please do not call them back or arrange to meet them, instead immediately contact the Medical Protection Helpline on 0800 982 766 or email medical.rsa@medicalprotection.org for assistance.
