On Thursday 10 November, our Medical Negligence and Personal Injury department hosted a quiz night for Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA), the independent charity which promotes better patient safety and justice for people who have been affected by a medical accident.
Hosted by Samantha Critchley, teams from across the Medical Negligence and Personal Injury department, AvMA and leading barristers chambers enjoyed an evening of friendly competition in the London office seminar room, with quiz rounds featuring questions on pop culture, news, sport and music.
“It was a great evening, raising vital funds for AvMA. We support AvMA in their work, in particular the campaign against the Government Bill, currently going through Parliament which seeks to take away legal aid for clinical negligence cases. We believe that the proposals will deny access to justice for people who have been injured as a result of medical negligence, as well as harming patient safety. Congratulations to the victors on the night, 1 Crown Office Row!"
