Fraud in the NHS

Homepage » Get involved » Fraud in the NHS

In 2016-17 losses to fraud in the NHS were estimated at £1.25 billion per annum - enough money to pay for over 40,000 staff nurses, or to purchase over 5,000 frontline ambulances. This is taxpayers' money that is taken away from patient care and falls into the hands of criminals. 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.
