The Department of Health has today published the report of the NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) Industry Review and the Department's response.
The Department welcomes the report, which highlights the positive role of the NHSLA and the effective contribution it has made since its establishment in 1995. The Department broadly accepts the report, its conclusions and recommendations.
The Department’s response sets out actions that will be taken forward as a result of the review undertaken by Marsh Ltd between February and April 2011.
A process of engagement will now begin with stakeholders by the NHSLA and the Department to look at how particular recommendations will be implemented or where further policy development needs to be undertaken.
