Pressure selling to vulnerable victims
There have been a number of recent incidents where vulnerable victims, in particular the elderly or those with disabilities, have been contacted on behalf of private companies advising they are progressing a health referral on behalf of the NHS.
The goods being sold by these companies range from stair lifts, specialist beds, vibrating chairs, seat heat pads, and wheel chairs.
Be assured that these companies are not acting on behalf on NHS Fife.
Patient confidentiality is paramount to NHS Fife and the health board does not and will not disclose personal health details to commercial companies.
