• Someone you love died during or after surgery?
• Your gut instinct tells you something’s not right?

If it is a yes to any of the above, more than likely an “adverse event” occurred, medical jargon for a mistake.
Find you’re being bounced around the system from hospital to health department, to medical regulator one after another, round and round? Hospital/s stalled handing over information you’re entitled to have then got their lawyers on to you when you wouldn’t go away? Driven up the wall trying to get answers? Contacted your Member of Parliament who, when it all got too hard, acted like a postman and just passed your letter along to someone else?
It’s the 3-D experience: Disaster↔Dishonesty↔Deceit←

Our Information Packs are produced for people precisely in your predicament. You cannot afford not to have one.
Our Q&A Sessions are consultations by telephone with one of the MEAG Team. You will not get a cross-section of such in-depth knowledge anywhere else.
TIP: You especially need this before having a meeting at the hospital, or you’ll be walking into their trap.
Our Bad Medicine pack is a shocking indictment of the failures of the medical regulators to protect the public and weed out bad doctors.
Medical Error Action Group is not a government information service.
Hundreds of thousands of Australians are adversely affected by medical error each year; thousands die unnecessarily. This creates demands for our specialised expertise, which never ceases.
We provide this unique expertise in exchange for a contribution to our organisation.
We are not a department of government, nor does government fund us. We are independent and don’t kowtow to them.
Whilst investigating cases, reporting medical treatment deaths to coroners and criminal behaviour to police, monitoring error-prone hospitals, exposing hospital disasters and government cover-ups in media exposés, we receive thousands of emails and documents.
These demands mean getting help is first in, first served. Emails are answered in order of landing in our In Box. Priority is to those who have donated to Medical Error Action Group.
Take the reins and be in control
The key to getting on top of a medical disaster is being organised; that is how Medical Error Action Group can help you help yourself.
