These directions set out the functions and reporting requirements of the NHS Counter Fraud Authority (NHSCFA).

NHSCFA was established on 1 November 2017 to carry out the Secretary of State’s counter fraud functions in relation to the health service in England. The NHS Business Services Authority (Awdurdod Gwasanaethau Busnes y GIG) Directions 2016 are amended by the NHS Counter Fraud Authority Directions with supplemental directions 2017 to remove the functions carried out by NHS Protect, a division within NHS Business Services Authority which no longer exists.

The directions to NHS Trusts and Special Health Authorities describe their role in the prevention, detection and investigation of fraud in the health service, following the establishment of the NHSCFA.
