Request Reference: 8743 Request Date: 01 Sep 2019
Request: Dear Sir/Madam, For research purposes, could you please confirm the following: Question 1 For each of the last full 3 calendar years, how many prescription forms were checked for fraud where a prescription charge exemption had been claimed? Question 2 For each of the last full 3 calendar years, how many pounds in penalty charges have been collected, and from how many people, for making wrongful claims for prescription charge exemptions? My requests above relate to each of the last 3 full calendar years (i.e. Jan-Dec 16, Jan-Dec 17, Jan-Dec 18). If providing 3 full calendar years of data would lead to a cost limit breach, please provide as many years as possible with preference for the latest available data. You have previously provided similar data for me in 2013. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, [Name redacted]
