Phil Bradley and Harpreet Sandhu represent defendant cleared in £ 1.4m Dentist Fraud

Tue, 31 Jul 2012

A Birmingham dentist accused of conning the NHS out of £1.4m by making false claims for treating patients has been convicted of fraud.
 
A jury at the city's crown court heard Dr Joyce Elaine Trail, 50, submitted claims for 100 patients who were dead and triple-claimed for others.
 
The court heard she was part of a fraud involving 7,000 claims backed up by false paperwork.
 
Sentencing is due in September. Trail's sister, Fiona, was cleared of fraud.
 
Both sisters were also cleared of a charge of perverting the course of justice.
 
Joyce Trail's daughter Nyri Natilia Sterling, 33, of Ashwood Close, Oldbury, West Midlands, was found guilty of conspiring to defraud the NHS and told she could face a jail term.
