*Re JR55's Application for Judicial Review (Northern Ireland)

National Health Service – Northern Ireland Commissioner for Complaints. The Supreme Court dismissed an appeal by the applicant wife of the deceased against a finding of the Court of Appeal that the Complaints Commissioner of Northern Ireland did not have the power to recommend monetary redress at all in a case where the Commissioner had found failings in the medical practice where the deceased had been treated. The court held, among other things, that it could not have been proper for the Commissioner to recommend a payment of money and to threaten to report on the respondent's failure to pay it.
