What should you report to us?
Important: Letters regarding flu & covid vaccines
If you have recently received a letter from the NHS about someone who does not live at your address, you do not need to report it to us. You can simply mark the envelope ‘Addressee does not live at this address, return to sender’ and put it in the letterbox. It does not need a stamp.
We can take reports of fraud where the NHS in England and Wales is the victim.
You can find a definition of fraud, along with some examples, on the What is NHS fraud? page. This explains that we also deal with other types of economic crime, such as bribery and corruption. You can find details of many types of fraud and other economic crime committed against the NHS in our fraud reference guide.
You may find it helpful to look at the information on these pages when preparing to make your report.
Don’t worry if you are not sure about anything, or don’t know all the facts. It is still worth reporting your concerns, as it may help bring criminals to justice and improve our understanding of fraud.
If you work in the NHS, you can also speak to your Local Counter Fraud Specialist about your concerns.
