Hospital/s stalled handing over information you’re entitled to have then got their lawyers on to you when you wouldn’t go away?
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?
Driven up the wall trying to get answers?

Medical Error Action Group is not a government information service. Government does not 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 medical and hospital disasters and government cover-ups in media exposés, we receive thousands of emails and just as many documents. This means we cannot answer your questions by email. If we did, we would not be able to do anything else.
Studying your documents
If you send us documents to read and want our views, you will need to book in for a Q&A Session to discuss.
If you want us to investigate your matter, you need to book a Q&A Session first to discuss it. We have a strict investigation caseload quota.
For us to take on your case, you will need to be as energetic as our investigators in sorting your matter out. You will be expected to be upfront and answer our questions in a timely manner. This step is for people who are committed and organized. It is not for the faint-hearted as it can be tough going.
Take the reins and be in control
The key to getting on top of your medical matter is being organised; that is how Medical Error Action Group can help you help yourself.
You’re not on your own
The people who run Medical Error Action Group know the system inside out, all the pitfalls, and all the advantages. They understand your plight, loss, frustration and outrage, as they’ve been through it themselves. It is why Medical Error Action Group was founded.
Being informed is imperative
You need to devote time and energy to take on medical practitioners and hospitals and state/territory governments and be prepared to do the hard slog. Being informed and knowing what’s in store will keep you on the right track. Bear in mind that no one will be more interested in your medical event matter than you.
