We have been made aware of fraudulent activity in which some NHS suppliers are being targeted.

Some NHS suppliers have inadvertently fulfilled orders made by fraudsters.

Our Trust has not been affected and we would like to keep it that way. We protect our suppliers through our rigorous procurement procedures.

All orders originating from Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust will include:

  • An order number
  • A named contact
  • An nhs.net email address

If you are in doubt about any orders please do not process the payments until you are satisfied.

All Barnsley Hospital staff telephone numbers begin with 01226 43XXXX. Please feel free to call us to verify the order.

Suppliers should report incidents of suspected fraud to the police or via Action fraud, on 0300 123 2040, or through the online reporting tool https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud

All incidents against the NHS should be reported to the Trust’s Counter Fraud Specialist, Claire Croft on 01709 428710 or by email to claire.croft1@nhs.net. Alternatively, you can use the form provided by NHS Counter Fraud Authority at https://cfa.nhs.uk/reportfraud
