NHS Wales faces potentially huge claims18th August 2009
The Welsh Assembly Government has released projections which show that the NHS might have to pay out as much as £500 million in compensation claims.
Health economist Prof Marcus Longley, of the University of Glamorgan, said: "It is a lot of money, clearly. The average medium-sized hospital costs in the region of £200m a year to run, so this is the cost of one hospital basically. In those terms, this is a lot of health care being spent because the NHS has made mistakes."
