Introducing the NHS Counter Fraud Authority

The NHS Counter Fraud Authority (NHSCFA) launched on 1 November 2017 as a new special health authority tasked with leading the fight against fraud, bribery and corruption in the NHS and wider health service.

An estimated £1.25bn was lost in the NHS due to fraud in 2015/16, about 1% of the overall healthcare budget. That’s enough money to pay for 40,000 staff nurses and 5,000 frontline ambulances.

If you have any suspicions or concerns about fraud in the NHS, please report it to the NHSCFA - call the Freephone line 0800 028 4060 (powered by Crimestoppers) or report online at https://cfa.nhs.uk/reportfraud. All reports are treated in confidence and you have the option to report anonymously. By reporting fraud you can help us ensure offenders are brought to justice and that precious NHS resources are used for their intended purpose.
