AN NHS clerk who stole some £15,000 from a mental health Trust has been sentenced to 150 hours unpaid work.

Michele Dell, 34, of Hartlock Drive, Abbey Wood, was given a suspended four month prison sentence at Maidstone Crown Court on April 22 for stealing from Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust.

Over four months in 2007 Dell made fraudulent invoices whilst working as a payment clerk, making payments into the account of her accomplice Richard William Holloway, of Howbury Lane, Erith.

An Oxleas spokesman said: "Dell was dismissed on 28 February 2008. Procedures in this area have been reviewed and tightened."

Holloway was given a two month suspended sentence and ordered to obey a four month curfew wearing an electronic tag. Both must spend a year monitored by probation officers.

A further hearing is due to take place to decide the exact amount stolen.
