there is always more that can be done to reduce the number and severity of adverse events
Datix, a global supplier of patient safety software, is sponsoring a range of awards at the special Gala Evening to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA), the UK’s leading charity for patient safety and justice. The prestigious event takes place on 23rd November at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London and marks the progress that has been made since AvMA was founded in 1982. The evening aims to bring together key people from the patient safety and medico-legal worlds and promises to attract considerable attention and publicity among the clinical negligence industry.
Jonathan Hazan, Chief Executive of Datix, said, “There have been many advances in patient safety over the last thirty years, but there is always more that can be done to reduce the number and severity of adverse events, as well as delivering fairer responses when things go wrong. Today, more than ever, AvMA remains at the forefront of pushing for change and improvement on behalf of people affected by medical accidents and we are delighted to support the organisation as it reaches a momentous milestone in its history.”
AvMA continues to be a powerful voice on behalf of those affected by medical accidents, to improve patient safety and ensure access to justice. It provides extensive support and advice to families and individuals via a dedicated helpline and a team of specially trained case workers. It also plays a vital role in helping people during complex and often stressful processes such as inquests and compensation claims.
Peter Walsh, Chief Executive of AvMA said, “We are extremely grateful to Datix for supporting our awards for people who have contributed to patient safety and justice during the charity’s 30th anniversary year. Datix continues to make a substantial contribution to patient safety and this is symbolic of how businesses as well as health professionals and patients themselves have a valuable role to play.”
AvMA’s 30th Anniversary Gala Celebration will provide guests with the perfect opportunity to network and socialise in a relaxed atmosphere offering a drinks reception and three course meal with wine, live entertainment and dancing.
