The consultation on fixed recoverable costs in lower value clinical negligence claims ignores the role of the NHSLA, says Agata Usewicz

Posted on 24th February 2017

The timing of the Department of Health’s long-awaited consultation Introducing Fixed Recoverable Costs in Lower Value Clinical Negligence Claims raised more than a few eyebrows when it was launched at the end of January, not least because the consultation will open and close before the National Audit Office’s (NAO) investigation into the operations and efficiencies of the NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) will report its findings.

Agata Usewicz is a Head of Medical Negligence Team.
