NHS officials accepted almost £70k in bribes, court told


Recommended Posts

Jurors were told the NHS officials - compared to referees in the 'pocket' of a football team - were paid by businessman Noel Staunton, whose consultancy firm represented pharmaceutical companies.

As a result of their 'corrupt' seven-year scheme on the Isle of Wight, the court heard the 'integrity' of NHS doctors making honest recommendations about prescription drugs was breached and medicines were improperly pushed to GP surgeries and advisory boards.

Health service pharmacist Cathal Daly - who is also accused of accepting 'backhanders' - is also part of the group now on trial for a string of bribery charges.
