Good morning everyone,
I have a client at one of the high security hospitals and I am appointed under r.11(7)(b). Due to the client’s fluctuating capacity and the risk that he may not actually turn up for the hearing itself, I put in a request for a PHE.
I got a response back from STJ Bryer asking me to draft representations as to what makes the case exceptional such that a PHE is justified. I have looked through all the published guidance, but can’t find anything in relation to the factors which the Tribunal would consider tend towards a case being exceptional.
I have written back asking for guidance, but wondered if anyone has any experience of wringing a PHE out of the Tribunal and could share any insights into how they managed to wring blood from the stone!
Thanks a million
