I received an intriguing letter today. It is on NHS headed paper and is (or claims to be) from a fraud officer for my local hospital wanting to speak to me concerning my 9 year old son. I phoned the contact numbers but both went straight to standard answerphone ( it is Saturday, after all). How will I know if this is genuine? My son, after a very sick start as a prem baby, hasn't needed any NHS treatment whatsoever since he was 6 weeks old.
Has this type of thing happened to anyone else? I don't know what to think. The telephone number did not have a local STD code despite being addressed from my local hospital.
Thanks for reading. Clare
