The NHS Counter Fraud Authority has published its annual report for 2019/2020 and it makes for interesting reading. NHS CFA's priorities are:

(1) Increasing the level and quality of fraud reporting.

(2) Increasing the profile of the organisation and its work including being an important part of the Government Counter Fraud Function.

(3) Producing accurate intelligence and loss profiling.

(4) Producing coherent fraud reduction strategies.

(5) Organisational and staff development to improve counter fraud work/cultures.

NHS CFA's annual report shows strong performance and outcomes including £126 million detected, recovered and prevented. According to the report, 56% of fraud identified results in financial recovery. Fraud cases can result in criminal, regulatory and/or civil proceedings. If you have any questions about investigations or the routes for recovery, we're here to help.
