The Law Society Gazette has published an article by Adam Boukraa and Vikram Sachdeva QC on the case of R (on the application of Wallpott) v Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee and Aneurin Bevan University Health Board [2021] EWHC 3291 (Admin), in which they appeared successfully for the claimant, Ms Wallpott. The claim challenged a decision to refuse an individual patient funding request for potentially life-saving cancer treatment.
