Dead pa­tient den­tist guilty of NHS fraud



A FE­MALE den­tist who funded a lav­ish glo­be­trot­ting life­style by swin­dling £1.4 mil­lion from her own prac­tice has been found guilty of one of the big­gest ever NHS frauds.

Joyce Trail, 50, ( above) sub­mit­ted more than 7,000 dodgy in­voices for den­ture work that was never car­ried out at her prac­tice in Handsworth, Birm­ing­ham.

Trail, from Sut­ton Cold­field, West Mids, used the money for Caribbean hol­i­days and de­signer shop­ping at Prada and Jimmy Choo.

Birm­ing­ham Crown Court heard over one hun­dred of the false claims re­lated to sev­eral el­derly peo­ple who were ac­tu­ally DEAD.

Trial was found guilty of one charge of con­spir­acy to de­fraud the NHS be­tween April 2006 and March 2009.

Her daugh­ter, Nyri Stir­ling, 33, from Old­bury, West Mids, was also found guilty of the same charge and will be sen­tenced along­side her mother in Septem­ber.

Trail’s sis­ter, Fiona Trail, 46, was cleared of any wrong­do­ing.
