We’ve received this message from Praveen Jeevaratnam, Clinical Director & Consultant Nephrologist at the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust

“This week the North West Renal Network (NWKN) were alerted to an incident where a kidney patient had been asked for personal bank details. The scammer used delivery of Aranesp injections as a means of asking for bank details.

Renal departments or services linked to the treatment of kidney disease will not ask for bank details and these should never been shared. Thank you”.
