NHS ban for hospital hopper3rd June 2010
A judge has banned a homeless man from using the NHS unless he is genuinely ill.
Christopher Dearlove, 41, faked illness and used more than 70 aliases to trick NHS staff into admitting him to hospital but he has now been given a criminal Asbo by the judge at Bolton Crown Court. Dearlove targeted hospitals all over the UK in a deception which is thought to have begun 15 years ago. Each time he was admitted to hospital, it cost an NHS trust between £400 and £1,000.
