R (on the application of Mitocariu and another) v Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust

National Health Service – Hospital. There was power under the National Health Service Act 2006 to make 'pocket money' payments to in-patients, but that power only arose and could only be exercised for, and in connection with, functions identified under s 43. The Administrative Court further held that the discretion of a foundation trust to make payments was limited to that which was commensurate with the therapeutic treatment being provided, and there was no entitlement to payment, nor a duty to make payment.
