Annual report and accounts 2019/20

Publication date:

NHS Resolution’s Annual report and accounts reports on the first year of a new indemnity scheme for General Practice (CNSGP), bringing information on clinical negligence claims against the NHS in England under one roof for the first time. The report also describes the rapid launch of a new scheme, the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Coronavirus (CNSC) to provide a safety net for new healthcare arrangements arising out of the pandemic.

In addition to new indemnity arrangements, our response to the pandemic has included moving our staff to 100% remote working for the time being, pausing some of our reporting requirements, releasing our clinical staff back to the service and supporting NHS England and Improvement with the registration of returning practitioners. Whilst it is too early to evaluate the impact of the pandemic on our indemnity schemes and the other services we deliver at present, this will be closely monitored as the year ahead unfolds.

Our refreshed 2019-2022 strategic plan

Publication date:

In April 2017, we published Our strategy to 2022. The external environment inevitably changes and at the mid-point in our implementation period, we paused to take stock and to consider if we needed to refocus efforts, and if so, where.

Our refreshed 2019-2022 strategic plan: Delivering fair resolution and learning from harm complements our existing strategy. It includes priority updates across our four strategic aims: resolution, intelligence, intervention and fit-for-purpose and revised medium-term priorities.
