This was the first Measure passed by the National Assembly and is an enabling Measure which gives powers to Welsh Ministers to require the NHS in Wales to consider settling lower value clinical negligence claims without recourse to formal legal proceedings.

According to the Welsh Government, the Measure’s overall aim is to create a framework and culture in which NHS bodies in Wales are better able to learn from mistakes which arise during the provision of their services and to take action both to put things right and to avoid repetition of such mistakes in the future.
