Counter Fraud Services

What we do

We work in partnership with NHSScotland and across the Scottish public sector to provide a comprehensive service to reduce the risk of fraud and corruption.

We’re also responsible for checking patient exemptions in respect of NHSScotland patient charges and collecting payments for incorrectly claimed exemptions.
