Doctor handed suspension after altering taxi receipts to claim back more on expenses

A doctor from Essex has been suspended after it was revealed that she altered taxi receipts to claim back more than what the actual fares were.

Dr Heather Henry was suspended for bringing the medical profession into disrepute when she changed the receipt values following mandatory training days outside of the hospital between October 2019 and January 2020.

She was working at Southend Hospital's A & E at the time of the incidents and has now been suspended for three months.

As first reported by Echo News, the claims included a taxi fare for £19.20, when the actual fare was £9.20.

Dr Henry also claimed £29.20 and £39.40 for taxi journeys, when the actual fares were £9.20 and £9.40.

These amounts were eventually checked by another Medical professional with the local taxi firm used. It soon became apparent that the fares had been doctored.

Dr Henry's hearing was at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal earlier this month.
