Formatted abstract
 The NHS Redress Act 2006 (UK) is an example of a legislated compensation scheme for adverse health care incidents that aims to supplement the tort-based system of compensation, without going all the way to adopting a no-fault compensation system. It proposes an administrative method of providing speedier and more efficient and responsive remedies to adverse health care incidents than traditional legal proceedings. This article examines the detail of the United Kingdom policy arguments both prior to and since the passage of the legislation, as well as providing a detailed analysis of the original Bill, the parliamentary debates and the subsequent Act.
