Component 6 - Outcome Based Metrics

All outcomes from the work undertaken to counter fraud, bribery and corruption are measured and included in the annual fraud standard statement. These include, but are not limited to:

  • The incidence of fraud and the number of allegations reported
  • The value of identified loss to fraud and error
  • The value of all recoveries and fraud that has been prevented
  • The number of criminal and disciplinary sanctions.
  • Staff engagement with regards to fraud awareness, training

National benchmarking data is available to allow each health board to set realistic targets for the following year. These are included in the fraud annual action plan.
