CONFISCATION proceedings for an ex-member of the board of directors at the John Radcliffe's hospital trust, who was spared jail for lying on his CV, have been delayed.

Peter Knight appeared at Oxford Crown Court in January after admitting one count of fraud by false representation to get a £130,000 a year job.

The 53-year-old of Blagrove Road, Teddington, lied on his CV when he applied for the role of Chief Information and Digital Officer at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) in 2016.

He was handed a suspended two-year jail term for the single offence and ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

The charge related to his time in the role between September 1, 2016 and August 20, 2018.

After he was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court a further hearing was set to recover his ill-gotten gains.

That hearing - known as a Proceeds of Crime Act Hearing - took place at the same court today.

However, the final resolution of the monies has not yet been agreed and so the case was adjourned to a later date.

No fixed date has been set for that hearing which will be held at the same court in Oxford.

During the original sentencing hearing prosecutor Julian Lynch, outlining the circumstances, said an ‘anonymous referral’ was sent to OUH on May 9, 2018 saying that Knight did not have the Classics degree listed on his CV.

A search of his HR file revealed a copy of the degree certificate was not there and an email was sent to the him requesting the documents.

The court heard Knight said he would ‘dig it out’ but despite a series of emails chasing him for the information the senior figure ‘put off and put off’ these attempts before resigning on August 20, 2018.
