Staying safe online
It has come to our attention recently that a fake Facebook account (calling itself a variation on Nhs Sheffield) has been set up in an attempt to engage with patients who use our services at Jessop Wing pretending to be a member of staff.
This account has been reported to Facebook and the relevant authorities have also been informed.
Our staff do not contact patients through Facebook and make requests for them to send personal details or information. We will never use Facebook or similar platforms to contact you as a patient.
