Cervical smear spam messages

We have received reports today of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.  These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.  If you receive one  of these messages and are unsure if you are due a smear please contact us directly and we can check your records.
