This article discusses two recently published documents: the Department of Health's (DoH's) Executive Letter EL (96) 11 (DoH, 1996); and the Woolf Report (Woolf, 1996). These documents will have an important impact on healthcare litigation and will strongly influence the way in which clinical negligence claims are conducted and managed. The documents will influence clinical risk management strategies and the avoidance of clinical negligence.
