#StrikingABalance Introduction

The cost of clinical negligence is rising at a worrying rate, and this risks becoming unsustainable for the NHS and society. MPS is leading a campaign to ensure a balance is struck between compensation that is reasonable, but also affordable.

Our package of reforms could help to control the spiralling costs of clinical negligence – keeping public money in the NHS at a time when it is facing increasing financial pressure, and ensuring healthcare professionals aren’t deterred from staying in the profession.

There are several ways you can get involved with and support the #StrikingABalance campaign.

1. READ ABOUT OUT PROPOSALS

This quick reference document covers the key facts and figures as well as a summary of our proposed reforms.
