Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I am advised by the NHS trusts in Cumbria that information regarding large compensation payouts would go through NHS Resolution, therefore I am requesting the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000

  1. The amount of compensation paid by each of Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and North Cumbria University Hospital’ Trust to patients/former patients/their families in each of the past five years in response to complaints about the care received from the trust.
  2. How many individual patients these payments related to in each of the past five years.
  3. The amount of the largest individual payout made in the last five years
  4. How many of these payments were made as a result of out of court settlements and how many  went to court.
  5. How many of these settlements were made the subject of non-disclosure agreements, preventing the patient/their family from discussing the treatment they received (and whether each of these were as a result of court/out of court settlements).
  6. If there is a policy of applying/requesting non-disclosure agreements to compensation payments and if so, what is the reason for this?
