CARE ACT: LESSONS FROM CASE LAW (LEGAL LEARNING)

16.15-17.15


The judgments in the Merton and Davey cases have clarified key aspects of the Care Act, including in relation to what makes for a lawful assessment. This session will:

  • Explain and analyse the judgments in the Merton and Davey cases.
  • Set out in detail what the judgments said about what constitutes a lawful assessment under the act, and advise on what practitioners need to bear in mind to carry out a legally defensible assessment.
  • Examine the implications of the judgments for how local authorities should make decisions about changing care plans or personal budgets.
