Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Specialty: Ophthalmology

The following information was requested:

Follow up to FOI_5773.

I’m trying to compare what looks to be a steep rise in ophthalmology payments in the latest year with payments in other specialties. So I’m wondering why the stats in your FOIs don’t seem to match up to the annual report figures published here:  Annual statistics – NHS Resolution

For example, the FOIs say total payments for closed ophthalmology clinical claims were £49,152,144 in 2021/22 and £26,694,710 in 2020/21. However, in the supplementary spreadsheet, these figures were listed as £41,307,386 and £40,537,522 respectively.

Would appreciate your help in clearing this up.
