AvMA celebrates 35 years of fighting for patient safety

AvMA was set up in 1982 in response to the BBC Play for Today Minor Complications. We have grown to be the leading patient safety charity in the UK, helping thousands of people every year.

Fixed recoverable costs in clinical negligence proposals “dangerous” and “premature”

AvMA and many others including other leading patients’ charities and legal organisations have serious concerns about the Department of Health consultation on imposing fixed recoverable costs in clinical negligence

Rapid response and redress scheme for severe avoidable birth injury

AvMA broadly welcomes the stated intentions of the scheme in providing an alternative to litigation in these cases and making sure there is learning for patient safety, but does have some major concerns
