Local Health Boards in Wales were not liable for ordinary social care services provided by registered nurses in care homes


Re: R (Forge Care Homes Ltd & Ors) v Cardiff and Vale University Health Board & Ors [2016] EWCA Civ 26

The court allowed the Welsh Local Health Boards’ appeal against a decision that their determination of a flat-rate payment to care homes was unlawful as it did not reflect the estimated cost of the social care element.

Mathew Purchase was involved in this case.
