Factsheet 5

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I have contacted NHS Trusts in order to establish current status medication errors, reasons and claims and compare to potential savings with my solution after Clinical trials. The data provided by FOI requests note different values, on claims and money values from 2014 – 2020:

NHS Resolution Factsheet 5: 2019/2020 indicates the following for Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST) i.e. The Dudley Group NHS Trust:

tab – Payments made:

The 2019/2020 data in Factsheets 5 – tab – Claims Received:

Tab – Successful Claims indicates the following:

However, The Dudley Group Trust indicated:

1. total claims submitted/pending/successful (2014 – 2020): 11

2. total monetary value of successful claims (2014 – 2020) is £377, 080.

I have noticed the same differences with others Trusts data from FOI requests.

Can you please help me understand, the published data for Clinical Negligence. Does indicate or include claims for Medication Errors whereby a patient was harmed: low, moderate, severe or even death?

Is the data published an aggregate value since Original Join Date (CNST) 1997 or is it a separate yearly value i.e. 2019/2020?

Why are different monetary values in successful/pending claims between NHS Trust and NHS Resolution?
