Jenni Richards QC and Benjamin Tankel will represent the junior doctors challenging Jeremy Hunt’s new contract in The High Court on 19th and 20th September.
The Health Secretary will face a judicial review application over the way the contract is being introduced.
A group of junior doctors has accused Jeremy Hunt of over-reaching his powers, saying he had no power to impose the deal. They also claim that the Government’s “seven day” NHS policy is irrational, and lacks evidence to support changes to doctors’ contracts.
Jenni and Benjamin are instructed by Bindmans.
