A locally-led fraud investigation has ended with a senior commissioner being jailed for fraud.
Noel Morrow of Rivermead, East Molesey in Surrey defrauded NHS Bromley CCG of nearly £145,000.
He has was jailed for two years and three months at Croydon Crown Court on Thursday, having been convicted of fraud by abuse of position.
The 47-year-old has already paid back £93,681 to his former employer, which can now be spent on treating patients.
The former senior commissioner was employed at the CCG from June 2012 via an agency.
During his time there, he was responsible for approving and managing mental health ‘cost per case’ care packages for patients with learning difficulties.
An investigation revealed the CCG had received invoices for services that were never delivered.
The invoice led to £144,986.70 being paid from Bromley CCG, into Morrow’s bank account.
