To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the claims are for which total damages are worth more than £500,000 that have been settled under the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts; and in each case (a) which trust was involved, (b) what damages have been paid to date, (c) what total damages are expected to be, (d) what the speciality was in which the claim occurred and (e) what injury to the patient occurred.

The information requested was provided by the NHS Litigation Authority and is in the document, “CNST claims with damages over £500k”. A copy has been placed in the Library.


Total damages indicate the exact amount paid if the case is closed, or the estimated amount to be paid where some damages are outstanding, for example under periodic payments.
