NHS Resolution is extending the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts maternity incentive scheme appeals deadline to 21 August 2018. This decision has been taken in response to a technical issue that prevented information about the scheme results reaching chief executives and directors of finance within our intended timeframe.
For those intending to appeal their award – to reiterate previous correspondence: “Only trusts that meet the required progress against all 10 maternity safety actions will be eligible for a payment of at least 10% of their contribution to the incentive fund. Trusts that do not meet the 10 out of 10 threshold may be eligible for a discretionary payment from the incentive fund to help them to make progress against one or more of the 10 actions. Such a payment would be at a much lower level than the 10% contribution to the incentive fund.”
We are pleased to announce that trusts that have met ten out of ten maternity safety actions will be issued with their 10% contribution into the scheme on the 6th September with funds being available on the 10th September.
The appeals process is currently concluding, and final allocations will be confirmed in due course.
