NHS must take greater care with patients and litigation

Last week, the National Audit Office wasted a valuable opportunity to highlight the causes of costly NHS litigation. This despite Lord Justice Jackson promising the NOA was “investigating the manner in which clinical negligence claims are being handled on the defendant side.”  Instead, the NAO focused on headline-grabbing estimated future annual spending figures which neither explained the increase in claims nor how they are conducted. The NAO also failed to delve into the impact NHS conduct has on the cost of clinical negligence litigation and the extent to which events leading to claims reoccur.  These are long-running issues that vex claimant lawyers.
