Practice pays more for nurse's indemnity costs than her salary

Stop the Ambulance chasers. Make it impossible to sue unless the corner rules the death was due to negligence or malpractice. All other cases of medical error or negligence are reviewed by an independent healthcare panel or experts with no lawyers involved - so no ridiculous fees. Costs for panel with be negligible compared to legal costs - and a fair pay out where required to cover caring costs for disability caused etc given with no cut to lawyers. Could be set up in months and the law could be changed to stop all legal process as above for anyone using the NHS as an amendment to the NHS Healthcare Bill.
