Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) is the UK charity for patient safety & justice

We provide free independent advice and support to people affected by medical accidents (lapses in patient safety) through our specialist helpline, written casework and inquest support services. We can refer to our accredited clinical negligence solicitors if appropriate. We also work in partnership with health professionals, the NHS, government departments, lawyers and, most of all patients, to improve patient safety and justice.
