The NHS Litigation Authority (NHSLA) has supplied tables showing health care associated infections, copies of the tables have been placed in the Library.

The NHSLA does not record data specifically for each hospital, but rather for the national health service body that runs each hospital. The tables therefore cover health care associated infection related claims made against primary care trusts, NHS foundation trusts and NHS trusts.
