Request date: 05/04/2018
NHSCFA response date: 02/05/2018
How many instances of identity / CV fraud (unsure of the technical term you use, but when a member of staff, for example a doctor, has lied about or provided fake credentials in order to get a job) have been investigated since 1 Jan 2014.
Please can you also let me know the outcomes of these investigations (eg xx no action taken, xx unverified, xx staffmember found to have provided fraudulent docs, xx removed from position). A general table with outcomes and numbers of cases will suffice.
For those who were fired / lost their positions, please can you provide a breakdown of their general roles (eg nurse). If possible, please can you also let me know how many of these individuals were recruited to their positions via an agency.
A copy of the information is attached as a spreadsheet.
