 Fraud and related criminal acts 

The following list details offences which may constitute or result in a criminal act. These are mostly prosecutable under the Theft Act 1968, the Fraud Act 2006, the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act, the Criminal Law Act and the Bribery Act.

  • Theft
  • Making a False Representation
  • Failure to Disclose Information
  • Abusing Position to Gain
  • Gaining a Pecuniary Advantage
  • Misappropriation of funds
  • Corruption
  • Bribery
  • Conspiracy
  • Extortion
  • Receiving a Wrongful Credit
  • Money laundering
  • Identity Theft Extortion
  • Misappropriation of Funds
  • Forgery 

The above is not an exhaustive list but contains the type of criminal acts that we may experience in the NHS. In terms of each case a judgement will need to be made in determining whether a person’s actions constitute a potential criminal act. For any case that is investigated by the LCFS, advice as to whether a criminal act has been committed is always obtained from the Crown Prosecution (CPS). This is the body that prosecutes a case on behalf of the NHS.
