Robbie’s Law – CAMPAIGNING FOR A LEGAL DUTY OF CANDOUR IN HEALTHCARE WITHIN THE UK

Currently, any Healthcare Professional causing the negligent death of a patient is not legally obliged to be Open, Honest & Transparent with bereaved relatives or to refrain falsifying the deceased patient’s medical records.

“As the law stands now, however, doctors have no duty to give parents of a child who died as a result of their negligence a truthful account of the circumstances of the death, nor even to refrain from deliberately falsifying records.” ECHR May 2000.

We want the Government to create a law to make it a legal requirement to inform patients or next of kin of errors or incidents which may cause serious harm or death.

Robbie’s family continue to campaign 22 years on, not only for justice for Robbie, but to ensure other families don’t have their grief exacerbated by the dishonesty of the medical profession.

Please sign the petition & encourage ALL family & friends to do the same.
