  • Discounts on events such as the Annual Clinical Negligence Conference.
  • A substantial discount if you subscribe to the Journal of Patient Safety and Risk Management.
  • Expert Database: AvMA maintains one of the most comprehensive databases of the best and most experienced medical experts in the field of clinical negligence litigation. Each expert is vetted by our experienced staff and we monitor feedback from solicitors who have used them. Should you need assistance, we can also offer you a bespoke service, with help from our team of experienced lawyers and medics who can help you identify the right expert for your case. Although we guarantee to respond to requests within 7 workings days, we usually turn around requests within 24 hours. Your membership gives you unlimited access to the experts on our database. Where possible, each response to a request aims to provide details of two potential experts who may be able to assist.
