Lesley Elder jailed over false £2.5m NHS claim

08 April 2019 – BBC News

A woman who tried to cheat the NHS out of over £2m by exaggerating injuries from botched surgery was jailed after she was spotted at a hen party in Ibiza.

Lesley Elder, 50, from Poole, Dorset, claimed she was left in constant pain after a vaginal mesh operation and sued the George Eliot Hospital NHS Trust in Nuneaton, where she underwent the surgery in 2010, for £2.5m.

Ms Elder was jailed for five months at the High Court for contempt of court.
