*R (on the application of Rose) v Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group

Medical treatment – Human reproduction. The claimant sought funding for oocyte cryopreservation before she began chemotherapy. The defendant refused and the claimant sought judicial review. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, rejected the claimant's main argument that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence's strong recommendation that oocyte cryopreservation should be offered to those in a like case to the claimant was a relevant consideration. It further rejected her claims of gender discrimination.
