South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and another v Hospital Managers of St George's Hospital

Mental health – Patient. The Administrative Court dismissed the first claimant NHS Foundation Trust's application for judicial review of the decision of its appointed panel to discharge the interested party from detention under the Mental Health Act 1983. The panel was sufficiently separate and independent of the trust to enable the trust to bring a judicial review challenge to its decision, and it's decision had been open to it on the evidence.
