Claire Watson successfully defends interim relief application against NHS Trust following its decision to charge for treatment

3rd April 2019

Claire Watson is instructed by Susan Trigg of Bevan Brittan Solicitors in a judicial review claim against the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust arising from the Trust’s decision that she is not ordinarily resident in the UK and is therefore liable to pay for NHS treatment pursuant to the National Health Service (Overseas Visitors) Regulations 2015.  At a hearing before Lang J on 28 March 2018, the Claimant’s application for interim relief was refused on the basis that there was strong evidence that she was an ‘overseas visitor’ who had come to the UK for free cancer treatment.
