Fake Lloyds Pharmacy Emails 

December 2023 information from Dorset Police

A phishing email campaign is currently targeting people with fake Lloyds Pharmacy emails. The emails falsely claim that by signing up for Lloyds Direct you can easily manage prescriptions and get free delivery.

These emails contain links designed to steal personal/financial information or install malware. The fraudsters have made the emails appear more genuine by including Lloyds Direct/NHS logos and Trustpilot reviews.
However, these emails are fake. Do not click any links, provide info, or sign up through these emails. Double check directly with your pharmacy if unsure.
To learn more and stay updated on related scams, visit the official Lloyds Pharmacy customer service page: Suspicious Email/Spam Email (lloydspharmacy.com) How to stay safe online Get Safe Online | The UK's leading Online Safety Advice Resource
Key protections:

  • Verify pharmacy emails before clicking links or providing info
  • Go directly to your pharmacy's website rather than through links
  • Check for spelling/formatting issues indicating a potential fake
  • Keep device security protections updated to block malware


Stay vigilant against pharmacy-themed phishing campaigns trying to steal personal information or distribute malware. Verify legitimacy through official channels before engaging.

Wyke Regis and Lanehouse Medical Practice  Vision Statement 2022

 

“A committed multidisciplinary team who provide joined up, accessible care, with the right people, to meet the whole needs of the patient and support the health needs of the Community.”

 

Wyke Regis and Lanehouse Medical Practice supports a lifelong patient centred approach to care.

The Surgery recognises the workforce challenges across the NHS and chooses to prioritise Continuity of Care appropriately alongside strategies to improve Access to Care for all. As such it embraces a diverse workforce which adds depth and expertise to Primary care.

 

All Staff play a role in the team and take collective responsibility for ensuring best possible care is available.

The surgery maintains an ethos of respect for all staff and adopts a nurturing and supportive environment. Teamwork is valued above all and this drives excellence in care, workforce satisfaction and practice resilience.

 

New ways of working are embraced where patient care and staff welfare will benefit.

The Surgery recognises that new ways of working are needed to adequately meet the demands placed on Primary care. Where these benefit patients or are required to ensure safe care, Wyke Regis and Lanehouse Medical Practice will actively embrace innovative practice.
