Statistics from NHS Protect confirm that fraud committed within public health continues to affect the service provided as vital funds are diverted from patient care.
Nationally, in 2016/17 alone:
Statistics also show that the majority of fraud is committed by people employed by, working for or providing a service to public health organisations.
How do I protect my organisation?
The majority of fraud is spotted and reported by staff members, without the “honest majority” a vast amount of criminal activity would go unreported. If you do suspect someone of committing fraud follow these simple do’s and don’ts:
…report your suspicion to your CFS immediately
…keep any evidence safe
…make notes on what you know/ heard/ saw
…rely on someone else to make the call
…confront any suspect yourself directly
…start an investigation yourself
…discuss your concerns with anyone other than your CFS
November is Fraud Awareness Month. Watch out for further tips and advice from the Counter Fraud Team to protect you and your organisation against fraud. Don’t let the fraudsters get away with it!
