Proper state-funded indemnity would reduce NHS demand


I agree in principal. However there are two aspects to the litigation. The money involved and the stress involved. When I have seen colleagues (not me yet, but only a matter of time) going through a litigious process, they all know that they have insurance, so their home etc is safe. But the process is still ridiculously stressful. It feels very personal when blame is being assigned to you - even if the case is settled just because that is the easy route.. No amount of insurance will change that.
