High Court Hearing in Judicial Reviw of ‘Serious Shortage Protocols’ for Medicines

On Tuesday 26 March 2019 the High Court will hear a challenge to the legality of the Government’s powers to make Serious Shortage Protocols (SSPs) that would allow pharmacists to alter prescriptions for people with serious medical conditions, such as epilepsy, in the event of medicines shortages.

The Shadow Secretary of State for Health & Social Care, Jon Ashworth, also wrote about the case recently in The Times.  Further details of the case can be found in our original post and on the Good Law Project’s website. The case is being funded via our Crowd Justice appeal.

The Good Law Project has instructed Adam Hundt and Ugo Hayter of Deighton Pierce Glynn, and Stephen Knafler QC and Yaaser Vanderman of Landmark Chambers.
