Our Organisation

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. ​ Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

An effective NHS England and NHS Improvement counter fraud function is essential to ensure NHS funds are used to provide high quality care for the people of England whilst achieving efficiency for the taxpayer and minimising the loss to economic crime.

During 2018 NHS England managed a transition to an in-house Counter Fraud Team. This currently consists of a team of 12 WTE based in NHS England sites regionally and in Quarry House, Leeds.

These posts will be key in enhancing and increasing the capacity of the in-house NHS England and NHS Improvement Counter Fraud Team to focus on reactive investigation work and undertake some proactive work. Both these elements will involve regular regional travel and some national travel.

As a Counter Fraud Specialist, the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective service supporting managers and staff across NHS England and NHS Improvement to ensure the delivery of an efficient counter fraud function.

Interviews will be held week commencing 7th October 2019.
