Extravasation is the accidental leakage of any liquid from a vein into the surrounding tissues, which can cause serious harm to the patient (NHS England, 2017).
From 1 April 2011 until 31 March 2021 the NHS paid £15.6 million in damages relating to extravasation.
This leaflet, published by NHS Resolution, aims to share learning from those claims.
