Case Law Update 41 – NHS West Berks CCG v FTT – CCG not joined as party to Tribunal appeal

In this update the Upper Tribunal rejected an application for judicial review challenging a decision by the First-tier Tribunal not to allow a clinical commissioning group to be joined as a party to an appeal which concerned the healthcare provision in a young person’s EHC Plan. The Upper Tribunal emphasised that Tribunal recommendations on healthcare matters do not create any substantive legal obligations for CCGs.
