Article 8 Challenges after the McDonald Judgement

16 July 2014 18.00 - 20.00 , Doughty Street Chambers 1.5 hours CPD*

Steve Cragg QC at Doughty Street Chambers, Sophy Miles from Miles and Partners and Sam Jacobs (DSC)

Stephen Lowe, Health and Care Policy,Age UK. 

Sanchita Hosali, Deputy Director, British Institute of Human Rights

Jan Sutton

The recent European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) judgment in McDonald v UK has broken new ground in that the ECtHR has for the first time found a breach of Article 8 ECHR in the social care context for a disabled person. However, the ECtHR resisted the invitation to give substance to disabled people's right to human dignity in Mrs McDonald's case. In this seminar, the barristers who acted for Mrs McDonald and for Age UK in its intervention in the Supreme Court will discuss the ECtHR judgment and its implications for future community care cases. Sanchita Hosali from the BIHR will discuss the impact of the judgement in their work with advocacy groups in the health and care sector to challenge service cuts outside of the courtroom. Jan Sutton will give delegates her experience in taking her County Council to judicial review for failure to provide her with a reasonable care package.
