Action against Victims of Medical Negligence [AvMA] is a nationwide charity who assist and advise anyone, who has been the victim of an clinical or medical negligence, regarding their rights and their family’s rights. Notable campaigns are supporting the enquiry against Staffordshire Hospital and introducing Duty of Candor (also known as Robbie’s Law). This acclaimed charity runs a highly recognised clinical negligence panel. Here at Bonallack and Bishop, we would like to congratulate Denise Broomfield, our medical negligence claims team leader, who has just attained re-accreditation to this respected panel.
The AvMA panel – real expertise
As would be expected from such a highly regarded charity, the AVMA operate a stringent and tough process when it comes to selecting solicitors within the medical negligence field. The figures don’t lie. There are more than 100,000 qualified solicitors in England and Wales. However, Denise is one of just 180 solicitors who are members of both the AVMA Specialist Solicitors Panel, as well as the Clinical Negligence Panel, managed by the governing body for solicitors in England and Wales, the Law Society. So she really is specialist in medical negligence compensation claims.
Accreditation to the highly-respected AvMA panel is only granted to solicitors who have demonstrated considerable competence in the clinical negligence field, married with the capacity for understanding the emotional needs of the individual who has been injured. They may be feeling very deceived by the medical professionals who caused their suffering. Now they are being asked to trust yet another professional.
We are massive supporters of the AVMA and everything they do. Apart from medical negligence solicitors, for many years now, they appear to be the only other organisation taking the concerns of victims of clinical negligence seriously, well before journalists realised there were stories to write on the continual scandals within the NHS. We are however lucky in Salisbury – SDH is generally a very well-run hospital with good standards and way ahead of many of the other hospitals our team regularly run claims against.
An AVMA panel member since 1996 (where for some time she was the youngest solicitor in the country), Denise can not only help you with your compensation claim, but she can represent your family at Inquests and also aid in any applications to the doctor’s disciplinary board, the General Medical Council.
