NHS 'compensation culture' reduces patient access to GPs

Comment

Has the compensation/litigation culture, actively encouraged by previous governments, actually led to a safer service to patients? I am all for patients who have been harmed by negligent practice being appropriately apologised to and if necessary compensated. But this trend towards a US-like negligence culture was always going to end in tears, for patients, clinicians and the tax-payer alike.
