The NHS Litigation Authority

We are a not-for-profit part of the NHS. We manage negligence and other claims against the NHS in England on behalf of our member organisations.  

  •  We help to resolve disputes fairly
  •  We share learning about risks and standards in the NHS  
  • We help to improve safety for patients and staff
We are also responsible for advising the NHS on human rights case law and handling equal pay claims.
We have a separate extranet site for member organisations. Please contact us for more details. 

Sign up to Safety

The NHS Litigation Authority is supporting Sign up to Safety, a new campaign launched by the Secretary of State for Health that aims to listen to patients and staff, learn from when things go wrong and act to make care safer. Sign up to Safety’s three year objective is to reduce avoidable harm by 50% and save 6,000 lives.
