The article focuses on the application of enterprise liability as form of compensation claims for patients who experienced medical negligence from health care providers. It states that through risk-pooling arrangements, hospitals have transferred their liability risk to National Health Service Litigation Authority (NHSLA). It mentions that the NHSLA managed several schemes such as the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST) and the Existing Liabilities Scheme as ways to combine the costs of liabilities to patients. It says that the use of diagnostic imaging tests served as a reasonable discretionary measure of care that laid down potential influence in liability risk. It adds that management-provided resources affect the diagnostic care.
