A new series of posters providing information on how to report fraud against the NHS, under a simple message which is also the NHSCFA's strapline: 'NHS fraud. Spot it. Report it. Together we stop it.'
The materials in this section were developed in partnership with Crimestoppers, who provide the NHS Fraud and Corruption Reporting Line for the NHSCFA and the Department of Health and Social Care. This free, 24-hour phone line can be used to report suspected fraud, bribery or corruption affecting the Department of Health and Social Care and its arm's-length bodies as well as the NHS. Please see the Report NHS fraud page for more details.
The designs in the posters above are also available as banners for use on websites and web applications, download via the link below.

A four-page factsheet and a double-sided leaflet (both updated in October 2018) which provide a brief introduction to the NHSCFA, along with information on NHS fraud and how to report it.
