Hyde v Milton Keynes NHS Foundation Trust

Costs – Appeal to Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division upheld a decision by a costs judge which allowed the recoverability of solicitors' costs in personal injury proceedings from a private retainer despite the case being initially covered by a public funding certificate. Even though there had been no formal discharge, as a matter of substance, services provided under the public funding had come to an end before the solicitors acted on a private retainer.
