Pathology lab errors

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

We are currently working on an economic evaluation of an electronic lab-to-lab messaging system.

As part of this evaluation we are trying to estimate a cost of errors that take place in Pathology laboratories (providing services to NHS organisations). I am contacting NHS Resolution to ask whether you might have information relating to this issue, for example number of path lab errors in one year; cost of litigation related to path lab errors; consequences of path lab errors; etc.
