Medical Injuries Alliance (MIA)

Sellors is a member of the Medical Injuries Alliance (MIA), a group of people with a particular interest and experience in representing patients injured through medical negligence, misconduct and preventable medical error.  Established in 2011, the MIA has proven to be a strong voice for patients in the Irish healthcaresystem.

The MIA has been at the forefront in advocating towards a safer system of healthcare regarding the accountability and deterrence objectives achieved for the tort liability.  For example, it has strongly lobbied for the introduction of a statutory duty of candour into the Irish healthcare system.  This has also been advocated by Dr. Gabriel Scally, author of the Scoping Report into the CervicalCheck controversy.  Dr. Scally found that the HSE’s open disclosure policy and guidelines needed urgent revision to reflect the inherent right of the patient to full knowledge of their healthcare details including the right to know when things go wrong.  Dr. Scally also recommended that a statutory duty of candour for individual healthcare professionals and organisations for which they work be introduced to bolster the concept of open disclosure which, if introduced, would be a significant milestone for both patients and the medical profession alike in the Irish healthcare sector.
