If your family member dies of medical error or negligence, do you want the doctors to tell you the truth about what happened?
Do you want to be treated by a medical system that favours honesty and candour over secrets?
Then please sign this petition.
Robbie's Law is a pledge for the care of everybody in the UK. So that when a person is faced with a heartbreaking loss of a loved one, the doctors must tell the truth, and refrain from falsifying medical records.
It's shocking, but it's the law.
"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."
European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) May 2000.
Robbie's Law gets it's namesake from Robbie Powell, who died an unnecessary death at the age of ten, 22 years ago. Due to this loophole in the law, at every turn his death has been swept under the rug. His family and thousands of others have endured years of grief, injustice and frustration.
The time is now – end this law from the dark ages of healthcare and sign the petition.
