A man and woman have been charged by police after bank cards and banking details were stolen from patients at Wexham Park Hospital.
Norbert Szoke, 28, and 22-year-old Rebecca Szoke, both of Mount lane, Bracknell, were charged by police on Sunday, July 17.
The charges relate to incidents at the Wexham Street hospital between March 2015 and April this year, where five patients had their credit or debit cards either stolen or had card details photographed.
The cards were then fraudulently used to purchase goods or to withdraw cash.
The pair were charged with seven counts of theft and four counts of fraud by false representation each.
Norbert was further charged with one count of theft relating to medical equipment being stolen from the hospital during the same time period.
They were initially arrested on April 28. Both have been bailed and will appear before Slough Magistrates’ Court on August 16.
