Mental health trust to leave litigation scheme

23rd March 2012

Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, which provides mental health and community services, looks set to be the first in England to opt out of the NHS Litigation Authority’s clinical negligence scheme.

The trust says that it aims to ‚Äúprocure a commercial alternative‚ÄĚ to the NHSLA‚Äôs scheme by April 1. The tender document anticipated the five-year contract being worth between ¬£1.5m and ¬£3m. The ¬£287m-turnover trust is one of three trusts known to have tendered for an alternative service, although one has now ruled itself out.
