The NHS in Kent has been overpaying its staff, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The BBC report: 

More than 2,000 doctors and nurses at all four NHS trusts in Kent have been overpaid by nearly £3m since 2007, documents have revealed.

A BBC Radio Kent investigation found in one case a consultant was paid an extra £42,750, while another was overpaid by £33,800.

The trusts said all errors were pursued and debt collection agencies were used if not recovered through salaries.
