Further to the information we published on 14 February 2018, we have now received the following clarification from NHSE regarding the additional payments for the extra work carried out by practices, for the few cases where harm was identified as a result of the delay in SBS processing medical documents: “The £250 payment will be made to practices where they have identified ‘harm’ to one of their patients, obtained consent from the patient and provided us with the medical record. Once there has been a Clinical review of the patient’s record by NHS England, and the practice perform the Duty of Candour to the patient – the payment will be made. The practices will not be receiving £250 for every case they look at, as this is what the repatriation payment was for. The additional £250 per case is provided for those exceptional cases where thorough investigation is required, medical records retrieved, Duty of Candour, etc”.
