Component 7 - Reporting Routes

Component 7 - Reporting Routes

Each health board should have well established reporting routes for employees, contractors or members of the public to report fraud, bribery and corruption. CFS is responsible for recording allegations of fraud in the NHS Scotland fraud case management system.

There are three ways to report fraud:

  • Employees or contractors can contact the health board's Fraud Liaison Officer (FLO). The FLO acts as a Laison between CFS and the health board. Their contact details can be found on the intranet site and should be widely advertised.
  • Anyone can report fraud by calling the fraud hotline (08000 15 16 28)
  • The fraud reporting route via the CFS website.

The fraud hotline and reporting route via the website are hosted and powered by Crimestoppers. You can find out more about Crimestoppers on their website
