Today we had some bad news regarding our taking the Trust to court for Judicial Review.
The rules for Judicial Review state that the claim has to be brought within 3 months of the decision being made.
Recent information provided to us states that the decision was made in August and unfortunately that means we have missed the window of opportunity by a few weeks.
While we're obviously disappointed by this, we still send our thanks to Irwin Mitchell and Partners in Manchester who spoke to us about the case and gave us a lot of advice for free.
While it is incredibly frustrating that we can't take the more formal channel of action on this occasion, we are not wholly disappointed. We still showed that the Trust was unable to supply any documentation about due regard to the Equality Act 2010 when asked.
You win some, you lose some, but we shall carry on.
