We are instructed by Professor Stephen Hawking, Dr Colin Hutchinson, Professor Allyson Pollock, Professor Sue Richards and Dr Graham Winyard in a proposed judicial review of the Secretary of State for Health and NHS England's introduction of non-NHS bodies to run health and social services without proper public consultation and full Parliamentary scrutiny. These non-NHS bodies, called “Accountable Care Organisations” could be given “full responsibility” for NHS and adult social services.

We are representing an individual whose family home was impacted by a new dwelling overlooking his garden. We advised that because it was not built in accordance with the approved plans it did not have planning permission. At first the local planning authority refused to acknowledge that the new dwelling had been built in the wrong location but following pressure from us the Council acknowledged that the dwelling was in the wrong place. After that there have been a number of unsuccessful applications for retrospective planning permission by the developer but the Council has now started enforcement proceedings to remove the unlawful dwelling.
