Reason for the rise in the number of claims (FOI_6342)

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

Published NHS Resolution figures suggest that, after removing the effect of Existing Liabilities Scheme for General Practice (ELSGP) from the total of all reported clinical claims, “numbers [of clinical negligence claims] rose in 2022/23 by 8.6%, compared to an increase of 0.03% between 2020/21 and 2021/22”

(NHS Resolution – Annual report and accounts 2022/23)

I would like to be provided with all information produced during 2023 that is held by NHS Resolution and refers to the reasons, or potential reasons, for the rise in the number of those claims. The information I am interested in may be held in – but will not be limited to – emails, memos and reports.
