Northampton General Hospital worker handed suspended sentence after inventing extra shifts A healthcare assistant working at NGH has escaped a jail sentence after defrauding the NHS of £3,400.
Paul Wootton, aged 30, of West Street, Ecton, was charged with fraud and securing unauthorised access to computer material with intent.
The healthcare assistant had accessed a hospital computer and used it to claim wages for shifts that he never worked. Taken together, the non-existent shifts were the equivalent of him working for 15 months. Northampton Chronicle and Echo
