A briefing note by Julie Burton Law concerning a successful legal challenge to a Local Health Board’s refusal to provide adequate replacement (respite) care for a disabled young adult. The note identifies the many obstacles faced by families in accessing suitable healthcare support of this nature – not least the lack of natural justice in the Local Health Board’s decision making process. However, as it makes clear, seeking legal advice and challenging decisions can lead to good resolutions.
