360 Assurance is a member of the NHS Counter Fraud Managers’ Group (CFMG). In response to the rise in risk and the quantity of scams being seen across the country, it was agreed that we would collect information from CFMG partners nationwide and produce a briefing paper, aimed at Directors of Finance, to be shared weekly. These will be made available via the website where they do not contain sensitive information. Click on the image below for the latest edition or on the title of this post to access previous editions.
This briefing summarises what our NHS clients have told us they are doing around strategic governance, financial governance, and fraud in response to COVID-19, as well as outlining areas for consideration and good practice.
This quarterly Counter Fraud newsletter has been designed to highlight topical areas of fraud within the NHS and raise awareness of why we need to combat it effectively. By giving interesting case examples, this newsletter will help you to identify what fraud is and offers the correct reporting lines if you suspect fraud is occurring within your organisation.
This report shares the best practice identified as a result of our reviews of Policy Monitoring across a number of clients. The policies reviewed were Complaints, Mandatory Training and IT Access although some of the findings are applicable to policy monitoring more generally.
This year we undertook a client-wide shared learning project with @AuditYorkshire focusing on recruitment in the NHS (which always features highly in Assurance Frameworks). The summary report is available now – click on the picture below.
Our fourth and final briefing as part of Fraud Awareness Month is a reminder that scams can be targeted at anyone and we all need to be vigilant at all times. It includes links to three simple checks you can undertake to test your preparedness. Click on the image below to read the briefing.
