Child Safeguarding

Judicial Review

Following longstanding concerns about the failure of many areas to make proper payment to cover the costs to practices for work covered by collaborative arrangements, at the LMC England Conference, the BMA launched an application for judicial review in Northamptonshire challenging the failure to make any financial provision for child safeguarding services provided by GPs. LMC England have now been informed that our application for judicial review has been granted permission by the Administrative Court, which will be listed in the next few months. 

The focus now will be on collating mutual Counsel availability times to try to lock in a date which the parties can all do. Salford and Trafford LMC exec will keep you informed of further developments.
