We have been made aware that someone is calling GOC registrants ‘on behalf of the GOC’ trying to obtain personal contact information over the phone, possibly stating that they are conducting a survey. The caller had given the name of Lisa from ‘Clinical Standards Agency’, calling from a London-based landline number ending 0803.

Please be aware that these individuals are not employed nor appointed by the GOC to make these calls and we would strongly advise you not to provide this personal information. The GOC, nor those acting on our behalf, would never ask for your personal information to run a survey.

We have reported the event to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and to Action Fraud.

We would recommend that if you have passed on any data or you are concerned about this matter, to contact the ICO on 0303 123 1113 to report the name of the company and any further details.
