Abstract

The system of compensation for medical negligence in the UK is under substantial strain. Government response to this reflects the quintessential role of mediating and harmonising between conflicting rights and competing goods. The increasing tide of consumer pressure in society at and on providers of healthcare has resulted in a rapid growth of claims and complaints. Government responsibility for the administration of justice, the provision of legal aid and the funding of healthcare presents a related net of policy choices to government seeking to reflect and shape public attitudes and public services.
