I've been approached by these people today - wanting £299 + VAT to join a directory for GP's to view to find "recommended therapists" for their patients. Anyone else been approached? Intrigued as they approached me about a therapy I don't actually offer, and who is doing the "recommending"...
Interested in people's opinions - thanks.
This forum is full of similar companies claiming to be involved with GP's. They are all scams.
The only way to be seen in a GP surgery is by talking to the practice manager and advertise, place leaflets in the waiting rooms.
Don't waist money.
DO NOT DO IT!!! Big con. As long as people get reeled in, these scams keep perpetuating!! I got caught some years ago and cost me a lot of money for no return.!
Oh my god i had this a few weeks back, They hounded me for 3 weeks (2 phone calls every day) i will admit i ignored the calls. I cant afford advertising at the moment among other things anyway. When i asked where she had got my number from she said she had got it from my GP surgery.. I am not advertising there, only place i am doing any advertising is on facebook and word of mouth so a blatant lie to start with, and pretty sure even if i was advertising at my local health centre they wouldnt just give my number out anyway???? After 3 weeks of ignoring the calls she got the message and stopped. Dont go anywhere near. She was trying to convince me that it was for a new brochure that was going out in packs to new mums in my area. All GP surgeries in my area so approx 600 surgeries so a lot of new mums. Over £300 for quarter of a page of A5..... rip off!!!
Thanks - I wasn't going to do it - been around far too long to be conned out of my hard earned money!
I think its a good idea we post these things though so the less experienced can be warned.
Hi Giuseppe, could you request that CThA put smother warning in the newsletter and magazine please?

My friend is currently being hassled by a company called HSB wanting £850 plus for "guaranteeing" to put you on a hospital discount register so the staff all use you - BIGGER SCAM..!!
