Help celebrate AvMA’s 35th anniversary!

So much remains to be done to improve patient safety in the UK and to support people who have been harmed or lost loved ones through lapses in patient safety.

However, things are much better than they would have been without AvMA leading the patient-centred insistence on better patient safety and justice and providing direct support to over 3,000 people a year.

Please join us in celebrating that and help us develop our work still further.
