Fraud is, unfortunately, becoming an increasingly common problem in the healthcare sector but it’s not always easy to recover the much needed, illegally procured public funds.

Help is at hand. Over many years of practice, our specialist team of expert lawyers have developed methods of identifying and investigating improper claiming by primary care providers and can put in place steps to recover the lost funds.

We have a wealth of expertise and a track record for successful civil recovery actions. In particular, we specialse in helping NHS organisations claw back valuable resources from over-claiming contractors in the general practice, ophthalmic and dental sectors.

Stopping fraudulent activity is always preferable and we can also advise on how to minimise your risk, as well as help set up fraud response plans. Rest assured, if your organisation is a victim of fraud, we’re right here and ready to help.
