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 are, how they affect the NHS and could affect the Trust, and what they should do if they suspect fraud, bribery or corruption has taken, or is taking, place.

The Trust has a Local Counter Fraud Specialist (LCFS) to who all suspicions of fraud, bribery and corruption should be reported. All referrals will be professionally investigated and treated with the utmost confidentiality.

The Trust’s Local Counter Fraud Specialist is Claire Croft.
