About AvMA

Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) is the independent UK wide charity for patient safety and justice, established over 30 years ago. AvMA is widely credited with both having put “patient  safety” on the map and having brought about huge advances in access to justice for those patients who have been affected by lapses in patient safety (“medical accidents”).

AvMA provides a unique medico-legal advisory service to people affected by medical accidents. Help is available to the public through our Helpline and written casework service including support with inquests. AvMA helps over 3,000 people a year. We are constantly reviewing how we can develop services to best meet unmet needs.

AvMA also enjoys a unique relationship with lawyers practising in clinical negligence and medical law. We accredit specialist clinical negligence solicitors and provide information and advice to help lawyers do their best for clients.

AvMA’s Medico-Legal Services

AvMA’s Services are provided through the Medico Legal Department (ML Department). There are two aspects to our services, services provided to support the public and services provided to lawyers who have Lawyer Service Membership. Medico-Legal advisors are involved with all  aspects of AvMA’s core services which provides for greater variety and job satisfaction.

We also provide advice to lawyers (who have varying degrees of expertise in medical negligence litigation) to help them handle their clients’ cases.

The Position:

We are looking for a Medico Legal Advisor for maternity cover only. The role will be for a short term of 6 months but may be extended on a month to month basis thereafter, we envisage this being a full time role but part time of up to 28 hours per week will be considered.

AvMA staff have been working remotely from home during the course of the pandemic, it is therefore important that the successful applicant is comfortable with the use of the latest information technology including Teams and Zoom or can demonstrate sufficient IT experience and confidence to adopt AvMA’s systems with training thereby enabling them to work remotely.  AvMA will provide a laptop to the successful candidate although you will be expected to have your own adequate wifi and internet connection.

Training and support will be provided on our services although some prior knowledge of clinical negligence is required.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have a legal background and who preferably have experience of clinical negligence litigation. A medical background would be an asset although is not essential for this position as we already have a strong team who have medical experience  (currently three doctors and an inquest solicitor).

Ideally, you should be able to identify the appropriate medico legal experts to advise on breach of duty and/or causation issues as well as condition and prognosis. You will be involved in monitoring and keeping the medico legal expert data base current and maintaining a high level of service to our Lawyer Service Members.

You will be involved in providing support to members of the public by way of providing written advice and information on a range of issues from accessing the NHS complaints procedure to more in-depth analysis of cases and referrals to our panel solicitors. You will also be expected to  advise on the AvMA Helpline and you should be prepared to assist with the Inquest service which may include travelling around the England and some overnight stays while an inquest is being heard.

From time to time, you may also be involved in some of AvMA’s other projects including assisting with identifying suitable speakers for AvMA’s Lawyer Service Group meetings (LSGs).  Currently our LSGs are being held remotely via webinars, but this is subject to change according to the easing of lockdown and restrictions around social mobility, you should therefore be willing to travel to meetings if deemed safe and appropriate. 

You may also be involved in rolling  out AvMA’s Certificate of Competence scheme for junior lawyers.

This is an interesting and demanding role which will offer the successful candidate a varied work load with opportunities to use existing skills and develop new ones. You should be hard working, enthusiastic and prepared to embrace the opportunities on offer. The position would suit someone who has the determination, ability and confidence to contribute to the department.

An empathy with patients/potential claimants and recognition of the importance of gaining client trust and upholding confidentiality are essential to these positions as is a commitment to patient safety and access to justice.

You will be working with a highly respected team of professionals who have specialist knowledge and experience in clinical negligence matters. You will be supported in a friendly and collegiate team environment.

People

Our people are our greatest asset. AvMA currently employs approximately 24 staff (many of whom are part-time), bringing a wide range of skills, experience and passion for what AvMA stands for. AvMA also benefits from a pool of dedicated volunteers and an excellent board of trustees. Feedback invariably suggests that AvMA is a satisfying place to work.

Location

AvMA’s office is located in a modern, well equipped office building in central Croydon, which is accessible for wheelchair users and people with other disabilities. Croydon enjoys excellent transport links. East Croydon station provides frequent trains with access to central London in just 15 minutes. 

Currently, most of AvMA’s staff are working remotely and applications from candidates who wish to work remotely will be considered 

Due to the pandemic staff are currently working at home. The position would therefore be suited to someone who has suitable IT skills in order to log in and work remotely. You will be expected to conduct meetings via Zoom/Teams and will undergo training remotely however there may be times that you are asked to attend the office for various meetings with travel being at your own expense. AvMA has recent experience of remote induction with the appointment of our Information and Support Officer during 2020.

You also may be required to attend inquest hearings that are partially remote and attend/organise conferences with Counsel and the client.

As a Medico Legal Advisor you will have a varied work load with opportunities to use existing skills and develop new ones. You should be hard working, enthusiastic and prepared to embrace the opportunities on offer.
