Up to £5.7 billion a year could be lost by the NHS to fraud by patients and staff, a new report has claimed.
A review led by Jim Gee, a former director of NHS Counter Fraud Services, suggested fraud was taking place across areas such as general practice, dentistry, prescriptions and payroll.
Among examples of fraud cited in the report were GPs creating "ghost patients", dentists claiming for more work than was carried out and pharmacists failing to declare prescription charges that have been paid.
