Judicial review

Our healthcare team has considerable experience of advising NHS trusts and other healthcare bodies on public law issues which might give rise to claims for judicial review.

We have advised a number of healthcare clients on the procedures needed to avoid the risk of judicial proceedings being commenced for occurrences such as a proposed hospital closure.

We have been instructed in a number of high profile applications for judicial review, including various claims for wrongful detention by patients detained under the Mental Health Act 1983.

The team is also frequently called upon by trusts and other healthcare bodies to advise on the implications of the Human Rights Act 1998.
