Details

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. 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.
