Recently there has been an increase in scams around the Covid Passes. The NHS is still feeling the pressures of Covid-19 and some people are taking advantage of this strain by creating fake websites claiming to sell Covid Passes.

Criminals are using the NHS Covid Pass as a way to target the public by convincing them to hand over money, financial details and personal information. The NHS App is available in England for free. The NHS Covid Pass is free. The NHS will never ask for payment or any financial details. The NHS will never issue fines or penalties relating to your NHS Covid Pass.

In response to these scams, the NHS has put together an awareness resource, see below, to help you identify a genuine Covid Pass.
