I would like information on the number and nature of compensation claims brought against your organisation by members of staff who have sustained an injury or contracted a disease while employed your organisation in the past five years.
I would like a year by year breakdown, preferably on an excel document via email, detailing:
Details of the injury (i.e. moving and handling injury, slips/trips/falls and so on)
Staff role if known (i.e. staff nurse, doctor)
Whether compensation was paid
The total amount of compensation paid
If information available, any action taking following the incident (i.e. additional training, non-slip flooring and so on)
The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust can confirm that there has been a total of 5 compensation claims brought against the Trust by members of staff that have sustained an injury or contracted a disease while employed by this Trust over the past 5 years.
The Trust is withholding the information sought in relation to each claim by a member of staff because this would be considered to be personal information under Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act.
