Approach to the Management of Legal Claims in Light of the Covid-19 Pandemic


By embracing technology and working collaboratively with NHS bodies in Wales, HMCTS, external solicitors and other stakeholders, NWSSP Legal and Risk Services has been able to ensure the continuity of our comprehensive legal services to the NHS in Wales.

Frontline clinical staff, experts and others involved in legal claims are understandably required to focus their skills on the provision of essential healthcare at this time. This is necessarily hampering the ability of parties on both sides of legal claims to progress matters and will continue to do so for some time.

NWSSP Legal and Risk Services remain committed to work with all stakeholders involved in legal claims to progress matters as cooperatively and flexibly as we can in light of the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
