Employee Stores £146,000 NHS Cash in Bank
A semi-qualified accountant has admitted to storing £146,000 of NHS money in his personal bank accounts.
Sajid Khan appeared at Bradford Crown Court charged with retaining wrongful credits, over a period of four years. The 34-year-old, who pleaded guilty, was in his final year of ACCA accounting exams when the offence was uncovered by NHS Protect. The NHS team tackles crime across the health service and a source at the team said the successful prosecution of Khan proved they will ‘follow every trail to ensure criminals do not escape punishment’.
Khan, who was based at NHS Bradford and Airedale primary care trust, had failed to declare the public money held in several of his own bank accounts and will be sentenced in May.
