According to this recent BBC article, a figure of £83 billion is quoted in respect of the cost of outstanding compensation claims against the NHS. As any outstanding compensation will not necessarily be paid out in the next year and could stretch well into the future, it is misleading to quote this figure in the same breath as the annual NHS budget, however, it does provide for shocking reading none the less.
It is our opinion that the increasing amount paid to victims of clinical negligence is a reflection of the failing NHS rather than an increase in Claimant culture. According to the Health Foundation, this decade has seen a much lower funding growth for the NHS and this coupled with work force shortages and a growing and ageing population is stretching the service well beyond its capacity.
It is often not until a person’s earning capacity is affected that they realise why compensation is so vital.
