NHS Resolution - delivering on the strategy
Kennedys' healthcare team are delighted to be holding the eighth seminar of our 2018 annual seminar programme.
Guest speaker: Helen Vernon, Chief Executive at NHS Resolution
Helen is Chief Executive of the NHS Resolution (formerly known as the NHS Litigation Authority, NHS LA) which indemnifies all NHS Trusts in England via ‘pay-as-you-go’ risk pooling arrangements.
After graduating in Law from Cambridge, Helen started her career in insurance and then moved to the MDU before joining the NHS LA in 1998, becoming its Director of Claims in 2013 and Chief Executive in 2014.
Helen has since led a shift in the organisation’s strategy to increase its role post-incident, particularly in obstetric harm which represents upwards of 70% of its £77 billion provision. A Chartered Insurer and Accredited Mediator, Helen has been an advocate of the organisation’s role in encouraging candour in the NHS and in encouraging ADR in clinical disputes.
