Counter Fraud Services
Fraud is an ever-present threat and has many forms, but is always damaging and takes away valuable resources that could be used elsewhere.
Audit South West aims to minimise fraud and its costs to the NHS. We have a team of experienced, fully accredited, Local Counter Fraud Specialists who combat fraud in a proactive manner, whilst protecting the rights of individuals within the NHS - the vast majority of whom are honest and law-abiding. Our approach is based upon a local presence and close working relationships with client staff, with work plans tailored to the individual needs and risk profile of each client.
The immediate aim of our work is to prevent as much fraud as possible from happening in the NHS. Many people who might think about committing fraud can be effectively discouraged if we work together throughout the NHS to promote awareness and improve controls to prevent fraud.
Investigations have shown how the vigilance of individuals has often led to the discovery of high value frauds committed against the NHS. We publish a regular fraud newsletter to our clients highlighting key local and national cases and tips as to how to prevent fraud from occuring.
Suspected fraud can be reported confidentially to our Counter Fraud Service, on the national freephone 0800 028 4060 or online at www.reportnhsfraud.nhs.uk
