Who pays for NHS fraud?
This short animation provides examples of different types of fraud affecting the NHS, highlights the impact of NHS fraud and explains how to report it.
 
One of the fundamental principles of any NHS organisation is a commitment to ensuring that public funds are used appropriately. It is therefore vital that all staff understand what fraud, bribery and corruption is, how it affects the NHS and could affect the CCG, and what they should do if they suspect fraud, bribery or corruption has taken, or is taking, place.
 
When we say 'fraud', we refer to a range of economic crimes, such as fraud, bribery and corruption or any other illegal acts committed by an individual or group of individuals to obtain a financial or professional gain.
 
The CCG has a Counter Fraud Specialist to whom all suspicions of fraud should be reported. All referrals will be professionally investigated and treated with the utmost confidentiality.
 
The CCG’s Counter Fraud Specialist is:
Marie Hall
Local Counter Fraud Specialist
Audit Yorkshire
York Teaching Hospital
Park House
Wigginton Road
YO31 8ZZ
Tel: 01904 72 (5166)

If we are to succeed in reducing fraud, bribery and corruption to an absolute minimum, we need the help and vigilance of staff within the CCG. Staff have a vital role to play in putting a stop to the fraudulent actions of a dishonest few.
