Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I am interested in the amount of money that the NHS is having to pay out to staff who claim compensation for example for physical injuries, stress or other mental health problems. My interest relates only to health matters and accidents. My interest does not relate to other compensation claims such as those for unfair dismissal.

I would like to request the following data:

1) The names of the five NHS Trusts which paid out the largest amount of compensation payments to staff in each of the past five financial years:

a) The top five NHS Trusts for the financial year 2014/15

b) The top five NHS Trusts for the financial year 2015/16

c) The top five NHS Trusts for the financial year 2016/17

d) The top five NHS Trusts for the financial year 2017/18

e) The top five NHS Trusts for the financial year 2018/19

2) The number of compensation payments and the total financial amount of compensation payments paid out to staff, broken down into separate categories summarising the nature behind the compensation claims, for each of the respective top five NHS Trusts for each of the past five financial years

e.g. In the financial year 2014/15, NHS Trust A made 10 compensation payments relating to slip and trip accidents which added up to a total amount of £10000

3) For each of the annual datasets for each Trust in 2), a breakdown of all individual claims for each NHS Trust, including the total amount of money paid to the claimant and information summarising the nature behind each compensation claim
