We have particular experience in public and private law cases in circumstances where healthcare provision interacts with other services, both in representing healthcare professionals and organisations and in identifying and pursuing appropriate Defendants on behalf of patients. These cases include:

  • Respective liability of healthcare commissioners and providers. e.g. Hopkins v Akramy & Ors [2020] EWHC 3445 (QB)
  • Challenges by way of Judicial Review to the provision of healthcare to those detained in prisons and other establishments. (e.g. R(Uddin) v Governor of HMP Lincoln & Anor [2020] EWHC 2846 (Admin). Alleged failure to provide appropriate healthcare and prison response to PTSD suffered by prisoner.)
  • Representing healthcare organisations and professionals where their work is called into question in other proceedings, such as public law family care proceedings (e.g. M (Care Proceedings: Finding of Fact Hearing: Fractures) [2017] EWFC B50 A fact-finding hearing to determine the cause of multiple fractures to a minor).
  • Cases concerning the interface between the provision of healthcare and of community care: (e.g. R (JF) v NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group [2014] EWHC 1345 (Admin): Question of responsibility for necessary services when a patient receiving continuing healthcare is admitted to hospital)
