Chris Pursues Number Of Concluded Claims Under Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 27 June 2022 to Question 22335 on Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme, in what format information is available on the number of claims which have been concluded which does not incur the risk that an individual claimant might be identified as a result.
Weekly information on the number of concluded cases could risk claimants being identified as these numbers are low and when combined with other information which may be in the public domain or reasonably available.
As of 30 June, the NHS Business Services Authority has submitted 105 claims containing full medical records for assessment to Crawford and Company, with 12 claims now fully concluded.
Please see previous referenced Written Question and Answer 22335 below:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many claims for payments under the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme were (a) assessed and (b) concluded by the Government contractor Crawford and Company in the weeks beginning (i) 6 June and (i) 13 June 2022.
Following the commencement of medical assessments in the week of 23 May 2022, 22 claims were sent for assessment in the week commencing 6 June, and 20 claims were sent in the week commencing 13 June. We are unable to provide the information in the format requested for claims concluded, as this could lead to the identification of individuals. However, as of 22 June 2022, nine claims have been concluded.
