Claims against NHS for botched or unspotted illnesses

In response to a Freedom of Information request, figures from the NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) stated that last year, of 1204 reported cases against NHS trusts, one in ten related to failure of staff to diagnose cancer accurately.

Compensation paid rose from £56 million in 2009-10 to more than £98 million in 2010-11.

Successful claims for misdiagnosis in the five years from 2006-7 rose by nearly 80%. At that time claims totalled about £50 million.

The ‘no win, no fee,’ condition of fee agreements has been cited as the reason for the sharp rise in cost of the NHS having to defend and settle legal proceedings brought about by medical negligence.
