Jowhari v NHS England

Health authority – Negligence. The claimant dentist brought a claim against the defendant in negligence and/or breach of statutory duty, alleging that the defendant had unlawfully removed his name from the Hackney dental performers list and that he had suffered financial losses as a result. The Queen's Bench Division, in dismissing the claim, held that no duty of care had been owed to the claimant, either under the statute or at common law to protect him from economic loss and, if that was wrong, there had been no breach.
