Medical negligence, also referred to as clinical negligence, occurs when healthcare professionals fail in their duty of care to patients. It encompasses instances where medical practitioners provide incorrect, accidental, or substandard care that results in patient injury or exacerbates an existing condition, either through inappropriate action or a failure to act.

In the 2021/22 period, the body responsible for resolving medical negligence cases reported 16,484 clinical and non-clinical compensation claims settled against the NHS. More than 51% of these claims resulted in damages awarded across various medical specialties, including A&E, orthopaedics (involving bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissue), obstetrics (related to pregnancy and childbirth), and general surgery.
