Cost of disciplinary referral (FOI_5970)

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I am trying to source the most recent costs for litigation cases involving doctors entailed in complaint referrals for the NHS (and just NHS England if possible).

In a BMJ piece from 2016 ( it was stated that “The litigation costs facing the NHS are …staggering.” The NHS Litigation Authority estimates that current hospital clinical negligence claims will cost £56.4bn—just under half the overall budget of the NHS in England.

Are there other more up-to-date data that I could refer to?
