‘Jaw-dropping’ rise in NHS claims after scandals – REPORTS THE TELEGRAPH

20% rise in medical negligence claims has been seen last year with a total of £22.7 billion – nearly one fifth of the health service’s annual budget – being set aside to pay out compensation to people who have suffered harm due to poor care provided (as reported by the Telegraph – see here for their full article).

More than 16,000 people have made claims in 2012/13, which is a significant rise from the 13,500 of 2011/12.
