Written answers (Question to Health)

The State Claims Agency (SCA) has a statutory remit to manage personal injury claims, including claims in respect of clinical negligence, on behalf of Delegated State Authorities (DSA’s) including the Health Service Executive. 

The specific details relating to the Deputy's question have been provided to me by the State Claims Agency and are set out in the following report. I have been informed by the State Claims Agency (SCA) that the information contained in this document has been extracted from the National Incident Management System (NIMS). It reflects active claims figures as at 27/06/2019 and transactional expenditure over the 5 full year period 2014 – 2018. The figures only relate to claims against the HSE, and exclude claims against TUSLA and other clinical schemes, which are also funded by the HSE.
