Medication Errors

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Cause: Medication Errors

The following information was requested:

I would like to make an FOI request for the following information please:

1. What is the total cost of litigation settlements to the NHS on an annual basis as a result of medication errors? To include Adverse Drug Effects and Death.
2. Is this data available down to Trust level?

[Clarified on 25 January 2022]

If it isn’t too much of an admin burden, 3-5 years data would be amazing. Failing that, 12-24 months would be fine.
