Details of the Request

In the calendar year 2013 how much was money was paid out by the trust in the form of ‘losses and special payments’? (I am aware that the loss may have occurred many years earlier but I am interested in items which were paid in 2013, irrespective of when the loss took place.)

Please detail the three largest single amounts within this total, giving a cost for each loss, a brief description of the claim, and the reason for the loss.

In each of the three cases, please specify whether the person to whom the money was paid was a staff member, a patient, or someone visiting a patient.

In cases involving a patient or someone visiting a patient, please specify the nationality of the patient and whether they were a UK resident.

 

Details of the Response

In the calendar year 2013 how much was money was paid out by the trust in the form of ‘losses and special payments’? (I am aware that the loss may have occurred many years earlier but I am interested in items which were paid in 2013, irrespective of when the loss took place.)

The total losses and special payments recorded in 2013 was £121,667 – note that some of this relates to losses where amounts are not necessarily paid out i.e. bad debts.

 

Please detail the three largest single amounts within this total, giving a cost for each loss, a brief description of the claim, and the reason for the loss.

The three largest payments were excess payments made for claims under the Trust’s Employers Liability insurance and were (i) £11,252 (ii) £10,000 and (iii) £9,400

 

In each of the three cases, please specify whether the person to whom the money was paid was a staff member, a patient, or someone visiting a patient.

As these payments were under the Employers Liability scheme, the individuals would have been staff members at the time of the incident that led to the claim.

 

In cases involving a patient or someone visiting a patient, please specify the nationality of the patient and whether they were a UK resident.
