Rebecca Stickler discusses “how should individual funding requests be considered by NHS Commissioners?”


2017 brought us several interesting public law decisions, including many successful judicial review claims against NHS commissioners. This article will focus on one such decision – R (on the application of SB, by his father and litigation friend PB) v NHS England [2017] EWHC 2000 (Admin) (8 August 2017) and consider the legal framework surrounding Individual Funding Requests (“IFR”) and how such applications should be lawfully determined. It will also consider NHS England’s revised IFR Policy published on 17 November 2017.
