Dorset NHS hospital shake-up plans face judicial review

Full story in BBC News, 6 March 2018

A decision to reorganise Dorset NHS hospital services is to face a judicial review.

Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) agreed changes, including the closure of Poole’s A&E, in October and an attempt to get the decision reviewed by the government failed in December.

However, pressure group Defend Dorset NHS applied for a judicial review and has been granted a full hearing.

A date for the hearing at London’s Administrative Court is yet to be set.
