Make today count

Sometimes things go badly wrong during care or medical treatment. When they do, families can find themselves in a labyrinth of bureaucracy. When answers are not forthcoming and justice is a pipe dream, then it can feel isolating and lonely. When the world is a dark place, The Patients Association offer support to give families the strength and expertise to navigate the health and social care system. Whilst we could paint you a picture of the UK's health and social care sector, we believe the best stories are those told by patients and their loved ones. 

In our own words...

Forgotten by the people who are supposed to remember us...a short film from the families for whom the term 'avoidable death' will never be forgotten, even if they have been forgotten by the Ombudsman who claims to be by their side. Our President and Vice Presidents join families in asking for your support to find justice.
