NHS Injury Costs Recovery scheme: April 2017 to March 2018
The amounts collected by the Compensation Recovery Unit and paid to the NHS.
The NHS Injury Costs Recovery (ICR) scheme aims to recover the cost of NHS treatment where personal injury compensation is paid, for example after a road traffic accident. The Department of Health publishes monthly updates on the amount of money recovered under the ICR.
The Compensation Recovery Unit recovers funds primarily from insurance companies and then pays them to the NHS hospital or ambulance trust that provided the treatment.
