British Dentist Convicted of £1.4m Fraud against the NHS
Birmingham dentist Joyce Trail has been convicted of defrauding the NHS out of £1.4m to fund a lavish lifestyle.
Dr Joyce trail was part of a fraud whereby claims were made against the deceased as well as triple claiming against the elderly involving 7000 claims backed up by false paperwork. She also used patient details unwittingly provided by care homes and made claims even though she had not met many of these patients.
Dr Joyce Trail enjoyed a lavish lifestyle buying Jimmy Choo shoes at over £400 a pair and taking expensive Carribean holidays.
Speaking after the verdict, Victoria Jones, a representative for West Midlands Crown Prosecution Service said Dr Trail’s victims were not only vulnerable patients, but also ordinary everyday taxpayers.
Dr Trail faces a substantial prison sentence when convicted later this month.
