Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Health Services has been advised that some residents in the Central Zone have received fraudulent calls from a NL Health Services РCentral Zone number. In these instances, an automated caller indicates the call is appointment-related and asks for personal information.

While NL Health Services will take steps to confirm your identity prior to discussing an upcoming appointment, please be advised staff will not ask for personal information such as a social insurance number or banking information. If you receive a call of this nature, please end the call and do not engage with the caller. If you feel you have been the target of a fraudulent call or scam please notify your local RCMP and contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by calling 1-888-495-8501 or visiting the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website.
