Cervical screening scam warning

Public Health England (PHE) has advised of a potential scam involving a text message being sent to some women purporting to be from PHE’s call and recall service.

The text message advises that the recipient is overdue for their cervical screening test (smear test) and to call a mobile number to book an appointment and provide personal details.

These messages are not from the NHS cervical screening programme, please do not disclose any personal information should you receive this message.

This has been reported to the Action Fraud Line.
