1st July 2019 – We are delighted to announce that Nick Fairweather has been appointed to the specialist Clinical Negligence Panel operated by Action against Medical Accidents (‘AvMA’).
AvMA is a well-known national charity which champions patient safety and justice.
Their mission statement is:-
“..to support people affected by avoidable harm in healthcare; to help them achieve justice; and to promote better patient safety for all”
Nick is 1 of only 3 solicitors accredited with AvMA panel membership throughout Kent.
Nick commented on the appointment:-
“I have been a Law Society Clinical Negligence Panel member since 1999, which shall continue, but felt that now was the right time to supplement this with AvMA membership. I have long been a keen admirer of the organisation and we have worked with them extensively as a firm. What I particularly like about AvMA is its emphasis on putting the patient first and campaigning for lasting and effective changes in practice to safeguard patient safety – alongside the litigation that we are involved in. I am very much looking forward to our teams working closely together over the coming years.”
