HL Deb 04 November 2002 vol 640 c58WA
Baroness Greengross

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they expect to publish a White Paper on medical negligence claims. [HL6161]

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath:

Potential reforms to the way clinical negligence claims are handled raise complex issues and need to be considered in tandem with the review of the National Health Service complaints procedure and the Lord Chancellor's consideration of possible changes in the basis on which compensation is paid. We hope to publish proposals for reform late this year.
