We are delighted to announce that the head of our clinical negligence department, Clare Milne, has been awarded membership of the AvMA Specialist Clinical Negligence Panel.
AvMA is an independent patient safety charity which provides advice and support to patients who may have been harmed as a result of poor medical treatment. On its website (www.avma.org.uk ), AvMA explains what being a panel member involves:
“AvMA…expects not only a high standard of legal service from its panel members but practitioners who are prepared to go that extra mile on behalf of their clients and who share AvMA’s broader aims and objectives on patient safety and justice.”
When assessing whether a practitioner is a suitable candidate for panel membership, AvMA considers the work of the team as a whole, as well as the individual. Therefore, being awarded this prestigious accreditation is a reflection not only of Clare’s commitment and expertise, but also that of the whole medical negligence department here at Girlings Personal Injury Claims.
