Clinical negligence protocol during pandemic agreed

Published: 14 Aug 2020

AvMA is pleased to have worked with its lawyer members, NHS Resolution and the Society of Clinical Injury Lawyers (SCIL) to agree a joint protocol on the handling of clinical negligence claims during the pandemic.

It offers some assurance to those unfortunate enough to have to pursue a clinical negligence claim during these difficult times whilst recognising the pressure being faced by the NHS. It also demonstrates how claimant and defence organisations can work collaboratively.

We would like to thank our members who offered comments on the draft protocol and NHS Resolution and SCIL for their collaboration.
