35th Anniversary Year 2017

AvMA Charity of the Year 20172017 marks AvMA’s 35th Anniversary

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

As a charity we cannot exist without your donations and support. It enables us to continue helping thousands of families who have suffered a medical accident.

We are a powerful voice for the injured patient and their families. Together we can improve patient safety, ensure access to justice and give vital support to our most vulnerable families.

Our need is great, resources stretched with increasing demand for our patient advice line, specialist client case work and our highly successful inquest support services.

In addition, we continue to fight to preserve access to justice for victims of clinical negligence, their families and the great British public.

AvMA’s recent achievements include:

  • Being an active member of the Mid Staffs public inquiry
  • Instrumental in the introduction of “Duty of Candour”
  • Our successful campaign for a Chief Coroner
