NHS Litigation Authority

In April 2017 we brought together our three main functions under the umbrella name, NHS Resolution. We are in the process of replacing the current NHS LA and NCAS websites with a new user-orientated website going live on in early 2018.

In the interim, you can read about our five year strategy on​.

We are an arm’s length body of the Department of Health. We are a not-for-profit part of the NHS which provides;

·         Indemnity cover for clinical and non-clinical liabilities,

·         Learning from claims

·         Legal and professional services,

·         Dispute resolution between commissioners and contractors,

·         Help for healthcare providers in the performance management of clinicians through advice, training and other support.​
