Care plan

The court existed as a last resort where there was illegality or unreasonableness and was not the appropriate organ to prescribe the degree of detail that should go into a care plan or the amount of consultation to be carried out with a patient’s advisers. The council’s plans for the redevelopment of the residential care home were not in breach of its undertakings that a certain type of care would be provided as the plans did not inhibit the operation of an appropriate regime at the home. At this stage it was not necessary that the care plan should deal with matters over and above ensuring that the physical building would not inhibit the operation of an appropriate regime.
