The bogus letter contains information detailing the side effects of consuming alcohol when using the drug Metformin.

The letter has not been produced or authorised by the Trust. It features a logo which has been taken from the Trust website and includes a copyright. This is not a genuine template and does not replicate a format used anywhere within the hospital.

Anyone who has received one of the letters should contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 01493 453240.
