HCSA and P4H events provide opportunity to promote NHSCFA’s work on procurement fraud, a key priority for 2019/20.
The NHS Counter Fraud Authority (NHSCFA) recently attended two healthcare procurement events to help promote their work against procurement fraud, which is to be a key priority area for 2019/20.
The Health Care Supply Association’s (HCSA) summer conference, held on 18 June at Whittlebury Hall near Towcester (Northants), provided an opportunity to engage with an audience of NHS procurement professionals. Considering the national exercise being carried out by the NHSCFA on the prevention of procurement fraud, this was particularly timely. The event fell during the first phase of the exercise, with the NHSCFA asking NHS providers for information on a number of potential risk areas, such as disaggregate spend.
