No fault claims on the NHS

The Herald reports on plans afoot to introduce a “no fault” compensation scheme in the NHS for those injured at the hands of its doctors. This would avoid the need for complex negligence claims.

It would, it is said, be similar to the current system for criminal injuries compensation.

What is not immediately apparent to be is why those injured by the health service would be fast tracked for compensation, but there are no similar plans for injury or damaged caused by other public services like social work, education, nationalised banks or watching too many episodes of tronji on the BBC.
