Annual healthcare seminar programme - NHS Resolution - its current objectives and future aims
Kennedys' healthcare team are delighted to be holding the eighth seminar of our 2019 annual healthcare seminar programme.
Guest speaker - Helen Vernon, Chief Executive at NHS Resolution
Helen is Chief Executive of NHS Resolution (formerly known as the NHS Litigation Authority, NHS LA) which provides indemnity for clinical negligence and other liabilities to the NHS in England.
After graduating in Law from Cambridge, Helen started her career in insurance before specialising in medical negligence indemnity, becoming the NHS Litigation Authority's Director of Claims in 2013 and Chief Executive in 2014.
In 2018/19 NHS Resolution spent over £2.4 billion on compensation costs and currently holds a provision for NHS liabilities of over £83 billion.
Helen has led a shift in the organisation's strategy to extend its role in learning from harm and to increase the role of alternative dispute resolution in healthcare claims.
