Alert - Vaccine Passport Scams



Action Fraud has received over 700 reports from members of the public about fake emails purporting to be from the NHS. The emails claim to be able to provide people with a “digital passport” that “proves you have been vaccinated against COVID-19”. These emails are fake, and the links within them lead to genuine-looking websites that steal your personal and financial information.

How to protect yourself:

In the UK, coronavirus vaccines will only be available via the National Health Services of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. You can be contacted by the NHS, your employer, a GP surgery or pharmacy local to you, to receive your vaccine. Remember, the vaccine is free of charge. At no point will you be asked to pay.
  • The NHS will never ask you for your bank account or card details.
  • The NHS will never ask you for your PIN or banking passwords.
  • The NHS will never arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine.
  • The NHS will never ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents such as your passport, driving licence, bills or pay slips.  
  • Your vaccination status can be obtained for free through the official NHS app, NHS website, or by calling the NHS on 119.

How to report scams:

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, you can report it by forwarding the email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Suspicious text messages can also be reported by forwarding them to the number: 7726 (it’s free of charge).

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.

Warm Weather Crime Prevention


With the weather set to be very warm for the coming week, please take time to take care of your home security.

If you are enjoying the sun in your garden, make sure that your front door and any windows are not left open, as Burglars can be very quick and quiet entering your property.

At night before you go to bed, make sure all windows, especially those on the ground floor, and all doors are secured.

Local Residents To Have Their Say on How Cheshire is Policed


I’m proud to present to you my draft Police and Crime Plan, which sets out Cheshire’s policing priorities for the next three years.



The overarching priorities from now until 2024 are to:
  • Prevent and tackle crime
  • Make Cheshire’s roads safer
  • Deliver justice for victims of crime
  • Protect vulnerable people
  • Improve public confidence in policing
  • Modernise our police force
The plan has been produced with Cheshire residents' priorities for community safety at its heart but I want your views on whether it will make Cheshire even safer

Read the plan here.

Take the survey to give your views.

The consultation closes at 23.59 hours on Sunday 15th August 2021. 

Once the consultation is closed, the responses will be analysed and amendments to the plan will be made before the final draft is presented at the September meeting of Cheshire’s Police and Crime Panel.

If you’d like to request a hard copy of the plan or survey, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..uk or call 01606 364000.
