How to report fraud

Fraud happens when someone does something dishonestly to make a gain for themselves, or another; or cause a loss, or a risk of loss to another. According to the Fraud Act 2006, it is not necessary to prove a person has been deceived. The focus is on the individual's dishonest behaviour and intent. Just trying to commit fraud, even if not successful, makes the act complete. If you suspect fraud or corruption in the NHS please report it via the NHS fraud and corruption line on 0800 028 4060
