Mental Health, Public Law, Actions Against the Police etc., Clinical Negligence, Community Care Contracts – What’s happening?

Practitioners in the above categories will be aware that they were not included in the tender process last year. They are still on the 2010 version of the Standard Civil Contarct, although of course not immune from the impact of LASPO.

Their contracts were extended until March 2014, so the LAA needs to do something about the continuation of their contracts fairly soon if it is to re-tender them.

At the LAPG conference on 11 October, Hugh Barratt, the LAA’s Director of Legal Aid Commissioning and Strategy, was asked what was going to happen. He said that the LAA would be making a decision before Christmas and the LAA would provide more information in November.
