This week, I received a message, from NHS-UK, which says “NHSCovid-19: Your coronavirus lateral flow test result is out. It?s likely that you were infectious when the test was done. See result and vaccine you need here: https//nhs-ukservice.com/results5725we”

Three things about this one:-

1) The NHS is not using that signature.
2) The spelling of "it?s"
3) Last but not least, I haven't had a test!

Positively a scam!

Elizabeth,

It wasn't by phone, it was an email.

In case it's helpful to anyone here is a genuine response by text from NHS. This is from my mobile phone after I reported my test result.






Maybe someone could post screenshots of a genuine NHS email so that people know what it should look like
