Our CJ fund stands at £96,873. To take our fight (for you) to the next stage, we need to reach £100K by 23rd June, (Oral hearing in the High Court).

Please help us reach our target! All donations are very much appreciated! 🙏🙏🙏
We have the following update from Rear Admiral Mathias following today's Oral Hearing.

Because it is a complicated case, the judge has determined that she needs more time to consider the arguments &! will therefore give her decision on Friday afternoon.

Legal Update

I attended the 3 hour oral hearing in the High Court yesterday (23 June 2021). Much of the discussion centred on complex arguments over issues such as Standing, Delay (and the legal precedence associated with these) and what responsibilities the NHS and DHSC have regarding CCGs.

In order to give this case the due consideration it deserves, the Judge will not make her final decision on whether to grant approval for the Judicial Review until Friday afternoon. Even then, it may not be a binary decision as it is possible that an adjustment will be required with regards to which Grounds apply to each Defendant. This may require further detailed analysis of the Judge’s findings by our legal team and a further discussion with me on the way forward.

I will give you a further update once we have clarity on all the above but that may not be until early next week.

With best wishes,

Rear Admiral Philip Mathias and the Campaign Team

Thank you for all your efforts, and keeping us in touch.
Legal Update

I am very sorry to inform you that the High Court Judge, Naomi Ellenbogen, has refused permission for this Judicial Review to proceed. You will see my views on this from the draft press release below, which has yet to be published (being checked by the legal team).

Importantly, the unequivocal advice from our legal team is that we should make an application to the Court of Appeal and I have given my permission for them to do so. Having come so far, I hope that you agree that we should not give up on this legal challenge until all avenues have been exhausted.

In the meantime please continue to support this legal challenge in order to pay for legal costs.

With best wishes and thanks,

Philip Mathias

Rear Admiral Philip Mathias, "Work is now well underway for the submission to the Court of Appeal. Your continued support is very much appreciated."

9th July 2021

Legal Update

Our QC has now sent a very powerful 19-page submission to the Court of Appeal, which is available under ‘Further Reading’. Unlike the two recently appointed High Court Judges, the Judge reviewing the case will be far more experienced. We expect to hear the result in the next few weeks.

Update 13/9/2021

We are still awaiting a decision

Just to let you know that we are still waiting for the Appeals Judge to make a decision as to whether approval will be given for the Judicial Review to proceed.

In the meantime, I am sure you (like me) have been appalled by the failure of government ministers, politicians from all parties and other so called 'experts' to even mention CHC funding during the recent exhaustive debates about the provision of health and social care funding reform. As you will all know, CHC funding is the critical (and failing) interface between the two and the level of ignorance on this subject is quite staggering.

With best wishes,

Rear Admiral Philip Mathias and the Campaign Team
