Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust,

I’m writing to obtain the following information relating specifically to your NHS Trust under the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

1. What is the number of serious incident reviews relating to clinical negligence at your hospitals in 2016, 2017 and 2018?

2. What is the monetary value of successful clinical negligence claims made against your hospitals in 2016, 2017 and 2018?

3. In the last three years (2016, 2017 & 2018), what is the number of settled negligence claims where damages have been paid (number of cases and total monetary value) in relation to:
- Allegations of late diagnosis / misdiagnosis
- Allegations of negligence leading to amputation
- Cases involving stillbirth or neonatal death
- Cases involving delayed diagnosis of cancer
- Cases involving medication errors
- Legal cases alleging clinical negligence which have taken more than 5 years to reach

If you need clarification on any of these questions, please let me know.

Yours faithfully,

Will Dale

Chris Kerr, West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Will Dale
First my apologies, your Freedom of Information request has not been acknowledged, due to a staff absence.
Given the context of your questions I believe this request is for hospitals rather than my ambulance service.
If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me
Regards,
Chris
