Telephone Calls

We have been made aware that telephone fraudsters are pretending to be The Medical Mistake Helpline, “cold-calling” individuals about non-existent possible claims. If you are contacted by someone suspicious, don’t give them any personal details.

Please be aware that we never engage in cold-calling or cold-texting and we will NEVER pass your details on to third parties unless you ask us to.

General Advice

We recommend that you keep your anti-virus and anti-malware software up-to-date to reduce the risk of being caught out by online scams.

The telephone preference service can help prevent unsolicited calls. Their website can be found at –
