NHS Counter Fraud

NHS Counter Fraud

The CCG is committed to ensuring that public funds are used appropriately. We work hard to help staff understand what fraud, bribery and corruption is, how it affects the NHS and could affect the CCG, and what they should do if they suspect fraud, bribery or corruption has taken, or is taking, place.

Fraud refers 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.
