R (on the application of Juttla (a child, by her litigation friend Kaur) and others) v Hertfordshire Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group

National Health Service – Duty to provide healthcare services. The services being provided by a respite service for children with complex medical needs were 'health services', within the terms of ss 3 and 3A of the National Health Service Act 2006, and the defendant had not fulfilled its duty to consult the local authority, under reg 23 of the Local Authority (Public Health, Health and Wellbeing Boards and Health Scrutiny) Regulations 2013, SI 2018/218. Accordingly, the Administrative Court allowed the claimant children's application for judicial review of the defendant's decision to remove funding of £600,000 from the service.
