Counter Fraud

NHS Protect has responsibility for preventing, detecting and investigating fraud against the NHS.  The aim is to protect NHS staff and resources from activities that would otherwise undermine their effectiveness and their ability to meet the needs of patients and professionals. Ultimately, this helps to ensure the proper use of valuable NHS resources and a safer, more secure environment in which to deliver and receive care.

Counter Fraud work ranges from providing expertise to tackle fraud and corruption, for example through data analysis and staff awareness training, as well as investigating allegations of fraud  through to the appropriate sanction, to providing advice on fraud and other related matters, such as ‘fraud proofing’ relevant policies and procedures and ensuring compliance with all current legislation. Overall, it means:

  • preventing, where possible, the illegal obtaining of money, services or resources from the NHS by deception
  • detecting and taking action where prevention is not possible.

NHS Protect has developed clear goals and a business process for tackling fraud. Fraud and Corruption within the NHS is unacceptable and diverts valuable resources away from patient care.  Each CCG has to appoint a trained and accredited Local Counter Fraud Specialist (LCFS) to undertake work to ensure that robust counter fraud measures are operating within the CCG to tackle the problem of fraud, thus providing more money for patient care.
