Document Forgery: United Kingdom

Countless incidents involving credential forgery within the healthcare sector have been recorded in the United Kingdom, causing health institutions of all types to incur financial losses, regulatory implications, reputational damage and, most importantly, internal risks.

Why is Primary Source Verification the Next Big Thing among Healthcare Organizations?

The answer is simple! In today’s highly competitive landscape, hospitals and healthcare institutions at large are placing a special focus on hiring exceptionally talented people, whether they be doctors, nurses, technicians, anesthetists, administrative staff and so on. Recognizing this, an increasing number of underqualified and dishonest individuals have been going to great lengths to embellish or even forge their academic credentials or professional experiences in order to unethically stand out from the crowd.

The Repercussions of Credential Forgery in Healthcare

A myriad of issues arise whenever a document is found to be intentionally misrepresented or forged. Topping that list is an ethical concern regarding individuals who purposely choose to falsify their credentials. In sensitive professions such as those in healthcare where ethics hold greater significance, such decisions have a much higher impact on human life and society at large.

The appeal of overseas job opportunities and the ongoing shortage in professionals to meet enhanced investment in infrastructure and social services has created a lucrative market for unqualified individuals to embellish or forge their academic or professional documents, taking advantage of the prevalent need to bridge the gap between supply and demand. In countries that import labour to support future growth and development, this trend is creating an increasingly acute problem
