star this property answer text <p>NHS Resolution has provided the following information:</p><p>NHS Resolution has provided tables which cover:</p><p>- total expenditure for NHS Resolution Clinical Negligence Schemes and NHS Resolution non-clinical negligence schemes from 2009 to 2018;</p><p>- the total legal costs per financial year; and</p><p>- the draft budget for legal fees/damages 2019 for NHS Resolution Clinical Negligence Schemes and NHS Resolution non-clinical negligence schemes.</p><p>The data is attached due to the size of the data.</p><p>National Health Service spend on legal fees for matters other than clinical/non-clinical negligence settlements since 2009 has been interpreted as spend relating to NHS providers and commissioners.</p><p>This includes NHS trusts, NHS foundation trusts and NHS England and clinical commissioning groups. NHS spend on legal fees for non-negligence matters is shown in the following table.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Total legal fees (£000s)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>110,747</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>171,806</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>162,273</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>172,135</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>160,140</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Prior to 2013-14, expenditure on legal fees was not separately classified by primary care trusts and strategic health authorities who both carried out NHS commissioning and NHS trusts. Therefore, comparable information pre 2013-14 is unavailable.</p><p>There is no specific category of expenditure that isolates spend relating to legal settlements in the NHS.</p><p>We have interpreted the request for data for the amounts set aside in 2019 as the value of said provisions as at the end of the financial year, 31 March 2019. This data is still subject to audit and will not be available until after publication of the Annual Report and Accounts in July 2019.</p><p>The budget totals for legal fees relating to NHS spend in 2019 is not available.</p><p> </p>
