The current system for resolving claims for negligence doesn’t seem to work for patients, the NHS or government.
- How do we reduce harm in the first place?
- How can the system be reformed in a way that is properly fair to patients but doesn’t bankrupt the NHS?
- What is the right way to address the needs of those harmed by the NHS, and what should be the balance between provision of health and care services and compensation?
- How does the NHS get better at handling complaints of harm and negligence?
With the government planning a strategy paper on options for reform of clinical negligence, you are invited by the NHS Confederation and Academy of Medical Royal Colleges to a discussion, followed by a drinks reception, to consider this topical issue.
