Fraud team successfully overturns NHS fraud case against client

Michael Balmer and Richard Cornthwaite have successfully represented a director of a multi national project management company under investigation by CPS and NHS counter fraud services in relation to allegations of fraud and corporate misfeasance centring on a Hospital redevelopment project in North Wales, estimated to be in excess of £100 million.

The client, along with other employees of the company were alleged to have conspired with the internal project lead, a senior manager within the NHS, to prepare false costing reports which hid the true cost of the project from the Welsh Government.

Following an investigation which ran for 4 years, representations were submitted outlining the evidential weaknesses in the case and which ultimately led to the prosecution formally confirming its decision not to take any further action against the client in December 2018.
