NHS Resolution - its current objectives and future aims

Kennedys' UK based healthcare team are delighted to be holding the eighth webinar of our annual 2021 programme.

Guest speaker: Helen Vernon, Chief Executive of NHS Resolution

Helen is Chief Executive of NHS Resolution which provides indemnity for clinical negligence and other liabilities to the NHS in England.

After graduating in Law from Cambridge, Helen started her career in insurance before specialising in medical negligence indemnity, becoming the NHS Litigation Authority's Director of Claims in 2013 and Chief Executive in 2014.

Helen has led a shift in the organisation's strategy to increase its role post-incident, particularly in obstetric harm which represents 68% of the £76 billion provision as of 31 March 2021 for NHS Resolution's main indemnity scheme, the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST).

Helen is a Chartered Insurer and Accredited Mediator and has been an advocate of the organisation's role in encouraging candour in the NHS and in promoting alternative dispute resolution in healthcare claims.
