Service: Claims Management Cause: Foreign Body Left In Situ

The following information was requested on 13 February 2019:

I would like to know the amount awarded in successful claims for cases where foreign objects were left behind inside a patient following surgery in the past five years.

Can NHS Resolution provide the amount in pounds sterling awarded in such successful cases in the years since 2013?

Can NHS Resolution also provide the numbers of patients to which the figures relate for each year?
