Fraudsters Stealing £300 Million a Year From the NHS on Prescription Fraud are First in Line for Prosecution
Analysis I have received as a Health Minister suggests over £300 million a year is being cheated from the NHS on free prescriptions. This is money that should be going the front line services for patients. So we have launched a crackdown as part of my wider work to save the NHS millions currently lost from fraud. This is one of a series of areas currently being exploited by fraudsters which we are now targeting.
