Recent decisions of the High Court and Care Standards Tribunal have provided some guidance upon the ability of providers/managers to pursue appeals to the Tribunal in circumstances where their “link” to the premises to which their registration relates has been lost. The recent decision of Welsh Ministers v Care Standards Tribunal (1) and ‘H’ (2) [2008] EWHC 49 (Admin) is the first occasion on which the Court has provided such guidance under the Care Standards Act. It is now clear that appellants can pursue Tribunal appeals to a full hearing provided there is a “sufficient practical advantage” in doing so.
