The trust’s counter fraud specialist Mark Bishop will be promoting anti-fraud messages to staff, patients and the general public who use hospital services.

Mark said: “The key messages are that we will not tolerate any type of fraud against the NHS and take any and all allegations of fraud very seriously.”

Fraud in the NHS takes many forms, such as patients and the public getting free prescriptions when not entitled to them.
