Bradford NHS official banked health cash

A senior NHS finance manager admitted he wrongly kept £146,000 of public money in his own bank account.

Sajid Khan, of Walmer Villas, Bradford, pleaded guilty to dishonestly retaining a wrongful credit, officials at Bradford Crown Court confirmed.

The 34-year-old, who worked for NHS Bradford and Airedale, held the money in bank accounts between September 2005 and last February.

Khan will be sentenced at Bradford Crown Court in May.

It is unclear how the money, some of which was spent, ended up in Khan's accounts.

He was arrested and taken to court following an investigation by NHS Protect, the counter-fraud service.
