This month in our Healthcare update, we look at the High Court’s judgment in a case brought by Worcestershire County Council seeking to judicially review the decision made by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care determining where a patient who has been detained pursuant to the Mental Health Act 1983 was ordinarily resident immediately prior to that detention. The decision is important because the establishment of ordinary residence in turn determines which local authority should provide and pay for the after-care services following an individual’s discharge.
Blake Morgan continues to offer its full support to all those working in the healthcare sector and is happy to provide any advice and assistance as and when required.
