Patient safety

Hospital signage to critical care

AvMA has played a huge role in moving patient safety higher up the agenda, but so much more remains to be done. Every day we speak to people whose lives have been devastated by avoidable harm in healthcare.

As the only UK patients’ charity specialising in patient safety we are determined to put patient safety at the top of everyone’s agenda by providing a well informed patient perspective and seeking improvements wherever we can.

In this section you can see some of the patient safety concerns we are currently addressing.
