The NHS Litigation Authority is responsible for administering all National Health Service risk pooling schemes. Since April 2013, independent sector providers of healthcare have been able to obtain indemnity cover under the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST). All CNST members are required to pay their actuarially assessed costs for each year that they are a member of the scheme.
