Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Specialty: Dermatology

The following information was requested:

I am seeking further information on the nature of litigation claims made within our specialty (Dermatology). We would be looking to summarise this information to disseminate amongst dermatologists for educational purposes and see if there are any learning points or potential future areas to audit.

Specifically we would be looking at what sort of litigation claims were made (related to drug therapy, phototherapy, cryotherapy, wrong site surgery etc.), how many were successful, payments made (average) over the past 5 years or so if this is possible.
