Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

Please provide the following information per specialty for clinical negligence claims for 2017, 2018, 2019:

· Number of Immediate Needs Assessment performed per medical specialty per year

· Number of clinical negligence claims that required a claimant solicitor per medical specialty per year

· Number of clinical negligence claims that required a case manager per medical specialty per year

· What is the average clinical negligence claim size settlement when a case manager is involved?

For your convenience, I have created an excel where all the data could be placed. Please fill in the attached excel.

Just in case, please find the definition of a case manager. It is a collaborative process which: assesses, plans, implements, co-ordinates, monitors and evaluates the options and services required to meet an individual’s health, social care, educational and employment needs, using communication and available resources to promote quality cost effective outcomes.

As well, please find the definition of an Immediate Needs Assessment: Immediate Needs Assessments (INAs) are classed as ‘treatment’ referrals. The intention is to identify the way forward from the point at which the report is instructed, in order to get the process of rehabilitation and/or treatment under way.
