The following information was requested:

I would like to access specific data on litigations associated with DELAY in performing gallbladder surgery or cholecystectomy in England in last 10 years. I have discussed this request with a colleague at your office. I am interested to find out how many litigations have been successfully filed against NHS for undue delay in performing cholecystectomy in eligible patients after they have been diagnosed with symptomatic gallstone disease and what is the cost implication from that.
