Action needed on directory scam

23rd December 2009

The British Medical Association is warning NHS GPs who signed up to a directory service that they may be charged for the service and should contact the company involved.

The NovaChannel firm, based in Portugal, who were responsible for the scam have sold their business to United Lda. GPC News said that many doctors had been contacted and were asked to pay for the listings, and explained: "We therefore advise all NHS GPs who unwittingly signed up to the Med1web form to contact United Lda asking for their details to be removed from its directory and for any contract to be terminated."
