Unsolicited phone calls re medication

We have had reports from patients that they are being contacted by companies regarding their medication. One company has asked patients to be their nominated EPS pharmacy, offering to deliver to patients free of charge (which most Pharmacies tend to do for patients anyway), and another company asked a patient for financial details (credit card details) in exchange for a good deal on medication.

While we cannot recommend where patients choose to take their prescriptions, we would ask that all patients are vigilant when receiving phone calls from companies they have not heard of.

If you are in any doubts, contact the local pharmacy that you use most often for your medication and never give any financial information over the phone when somebody has called you.
