In this alert, we consider a recent service reconfiguration judicial review claim, and the lessons to be learnt as a result of the claim for those involved in such reconfigurations.
In summary, the Claimant challenged a series of decisions of NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group of 20 September 2017 to approve plans to reconfigure health care services in the Dorset area.
The Administrative Court found that none of the Claimant's five grounds of claim had any merit. Accordingly, the Court dismissed the Claimant's claim (see here for the judgment).
Those involved in service reconfigurations should take some comfort from the case. Given the wide discretion enjoyed by CCGs in arranging for the provision of healthcare, a claimant has a high threshold to cross before a court will intervene in such cases.
