2017 marks AvMA’s 35th Anniversary!

Established in 1982 following public reaction to the television play Minor Complications, we have provided advice and support to over 100,000 people affected by medical accidents, and succeeded in bringing about massive changes to the way that the NHS and the legal system deals with clinical negligence and in moving patient safety higher up the agenda in the UK.

Though we have had many significant achievements, the need for our work remains as great as ever.
