The team undertakes both advisory work and litigation across this area of practice, including judicial review, the rights and obligations of local authorities to children, parents and carers, the interrelationship between social services and health authorities, continuing NHS healthcare funding, ordinary residence disputes, mental health aftercare, procurement advice in social care and healthcare, persons without immigration status and public sector equality duties.
