  1. Estimating the cost of compensating victims of medical negligence.

    Article - En anglais

    The current system in Britain for compensating victims of medical injurt depends on an assessment of negligence.

    Despite the sporadic pressure on the government to adopt a « no fault » approach, such as exists in Sweden, the negligence system will probably remain for the immediate future.

    The cost of this system was estimated to be £52.3 m for England 1990-1.

    The problem for the future, however, is one of forecasting accuracy at provider level : too high a guess and current patient care will suffer ; too low a guess and future patient care will suffer.
