Anybody that doesn’t have anybody around them to help can also use that line on 01235 422600 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Beware of ‘Home-Testing’ Scams

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) is warning the public not to open their doors to bogus healthcare workers claiming to be offering ‘home-testing’ for the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Suspicious callers are said to have been knocking on doors of elderly and vulnerable residents in various parts of the UK, saying that they are health officials doing door-to-door testing.
