FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management Specialty: Ophthalmology

The following information was requested:

Many thanks for this information [FOI_3540] which is extremely helpful for the research paper I am preparing on clinical negligence trends in Ophthalmology in the NHS over the last 10 years.

This is planned to be an update on the paper “A decade of clinical negligence in Ophthalmology Ali N BMC Ophthalmology 2007” which was prepared in collaboration with NHSLA.

In this paper as well as general trends in ophthalmic claims they also looked at claims in the subspecialties of ophthalmology (cataract, cornea, oculoplastics, uveitis, glaucoma, vitreoretinal, medical retina, neuro-ophthalmology, strabismus, paediatrics, oncology and trauma).

Would it be possible to obtain the same data for the last 10 years so that I can include it in the updated paper as well?
