A third of NHS Trusts have identified health workers using fake CVs or lying about criminal convictions, according to research seen by Sky News.
The survey was carried out by the CV checking company NDF Associates using the Freedom of Information Act.
It found a third of the 40 Trusts polled had had problems with fraudulent applications.

The Government along with local councils are guilty of not providing the very basic checks required as regards the qualifications of these so called "professionals".
