NHS Protect has ceased to exist

The new organisation is the NHS Counter Fraud Authority (NHSCFA).

The NHS Counter Fraud Authority (NHSCFA) is a new organisation tasked to lead the fight against fraud, bribery and corruption in the NHS. When the NHSCFA was launched on 1 November 2017, NHS Protect ceased to exist.

NHS Protect was the operating name of the NHS Counter Fraud and Security Management Service, a division of the NHSBSA.
