Detail

These official statistics record the number of claims received from when the scheme started in April 2014, broken down by:

  • month of claim
  • status of claim
  • age
  • gender
  • diagnosis date of the applicant

They also include total and average payments made.

We release these statistics every 6 months.

The information is also published in spreadsheet format.

The Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme was launched throughout the UK on 6 April 2014. It provides payments to eligible sufferers of diffuse mesothelioma, or their eligible dependants, who were negligently exposed to asbestos during a period of employment, but who are unable to take legal action to seek financial redress via the civil courts.
