Anti-Fraud and Corruption
The Clinical Commissioning Group has an Anti-Fraud Team you can contact if you suspect NHS Services are subject to fraud or corruption.
Fraud and corruption in the NHS reduces the resources available and can affect the services provided to patients and the quality of care.
All concerns reported will be treated sensitively and in the strictest of confidence.
How to Report Fraud
There are a number of ways that you can report any concerns that you have to the Anti-Fraud Team.

You can also report any concerns via the following national reporting lines if you prefer:
- National Fraud and Corruption Reporting Line – 0800 028 40 60
- Public Concerns at Work – 0207 404 6609
