The State Claims Agency (SCA) has a statutory remit to manage personal injury claims on behalf of Delegated State Authorities including the Health Service Executive. I have been informed by the SCA that the information contained in the attached report has been extracted from the National Incident Manager.

As per the previous PQ, the information relates to clams where damages have been paid but includes all category of payments in respect of these claims i.e.

damages, legal fees and other/expert fees.


- Payments relate to Acute Statutory and Voluntary Hospitals only.

- Payments are in respect of the Clinical and General Indemnity Schemes.

- Only claims where damages have been paid are included in this report.

- Payments issued on claims since inception from 2003-2022 YTD (31/01/2022).

- The amount paid relates to all fees: Damages (special and general), Legal and Expert costs.

- This report is correct as of 31/01/2022
