In July 2015, we published a paper regarding the NHS Litigation Authority Report and Accounts 2014/2015 which looked at the legal cost headlines created by that report, and which posed some initial questions from a costs management perspective.
Matters are now moving at a pace toward a consultation process regarding the introduction of fixed recoverable costs for clinical negligence cases.
This paper looks at the issue of fixed recoverable costs in such cases, asking whether the proposals are necessary or not.
It has been created in the interests of provoking further consideration, discussion, response and balance.
Propus Law would be delighted if you would share your thoughts on the report, and our paper on our LinkedIn page.
