Fraudulent activity claims hundreds of thousands of victims every year and, sadly, our health service is one of those organisations under daily attack. Fraud within the healthcare sector can be complex and varied, costing the NHS anything from tens of pounds through to millions. Prescription fraud, for example, costs the NHS £217 million each year in falsely claimed prescription charge exemptions.

This Counter Fraud (Healthcare) online course has been developed by healthcare training specialists, Espirita, and examines the different types of fraud active today, as well as the responsibilities of the individual when suspecting fraud. It looks at the role of NHS Protect in countering fraud in the healthcare sector and explores how organisations can safeguard themselves from the financially and psychologically damaging impact of fraudulent behaviour.
