  1. Please provide me with a table showing how many successful claims were lodged against each individual NHS hospital trust for the total of the last ten financial years (2006/07 to 2017/18 inclusive) where one of the injury codes was a hospital acquired infection. Only include trusts where there were ten successful claims or more.
  2. For the ten hospital trusts with the most claims please state what the total amount of damages was that were awarded to the patients for those ten years from each of those trusts.
  3. Please could you provide me with a breakdown of payments made under the CNST scheme where injury 1, 2 or 3 is for Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI) for 2017/18. This should include the number of successful claims, the damages paid and the costs for both defendant and claimant.
  4. Please provide details of the 3 largest compensation payouts in the last financial year where a payment was made under the CNST scheme where injury 1, 2 or 3 is for Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI).
