Fraudsters targeting NHS Suppliers



We have been made aware of fraudulent activity in which some NHS Suppliers are being targeted.


Some NHS Suppliers have inadvertently fulfilled orders made by fraudsters.


Our Trust has not been affected and we would like to keep it that way.  We protect our suppliers through our rigorous procurement procedures.


All orders originating from The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust will include :-


  • An order number or a contract reference number;

  • A named contact from within the Procurement department or the department placing the order;

  • An nhs.net email address


If you are in doubt about any orders sent to you or requests for goods or services made over the telephone, please do not process the requirements until you are satisfied that the order you have received is a genuine NHS order/requirement.


Most of our orders are for direct delivery to our hospital location (‘A’ Level Stores) but we do sometimes request deliveries to community locations within the wider local area, or directly to patient homes.  If you have any doubt about the validity of the location you are being requested to deliver to, do not process the order and contact a member of the Procurement Team via the main switchboard number at the hospital, which is 01709 820000. 


Suppliers should report incidents of suspected fraud to the police or via Action fraud, on 0300 123 2040 or through their online reporting tool https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud


All incidents against the NHS should be reported to the organisations Counter Fraud Specialist, Amanda Smith on 01709 428701 or by email to Amanda.smith61@nhs.net or the NHS Counter Fraud Authority by using the form provided at https://cfa.nhs.uk/reportfraud
