Recently there has been a spike in scams around the Covid Passes. The pressures of COVID-19 are still being felt across the NHS, with its staff and resources continuing to deliver services under increasing demands. Some people are taking advantage of this strain, and have created fake websites claiming to sell covid passes. These sorts of scams target NHS patients, people who may be vulnerable.

In response to these scams, the NHS has put together an awareness resource to help the general public know how to tell how to get a genuine Covid Pass (as seen below). Whilst this lies outside of the NHSCFA’s remit, we want to support the NHS and ensure its patients are protected.

  • The NHS will NEVER ask for payment or any financial details
