R (on the application of VI) v Lewisham London Borough Council

Community care services – Assessment of needs. The defendant local authority's decision, reducing the claimant's care package from 104 hours to 40 hours of care per week, had not been unlawful. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's application for judicial review, held that the authority's decision had not been irrational, had considered the relevant factors and had not been required to have specific health input during the course of making an assessment of care needs.
