FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Injury: Pressure Sores

The following information was requested on 11 February 2019:

Below and attached is a response provided to me in 2017 [FOI_3032] in relation to a question I asked NHS Resolution about compensation in relation to bedsores.

Could you now provide me with data in a similar format and calculated in the same way but this time for claims paid out in the 2017/18 financial year?


  1. In the 2016/17 financial year how many patients successfully claimed damages after claiming that they suffered bedsores as a result of negligent treatment at the hands of the NHS?
  2. What was the total amount of damages paid as a result of these claims?
  3. How many patients who successfully claimed for bedsores also claimed for an amputation as a result of a consequence of suffering bedsores?

Please note the question relates to the year the payment was made irrespective of when the incident happened or when the claim was lodged.
