QUESTION:

Assume that the Health Services Act 2017 empowers health authorities and NHS Trusts to offer revolutionary new treatment to elderly people suffering from life threatening illnesses.  The Act further provides that any decision of a local health authority or NHS Trust shall be final.

Henry is sixty-six years old and suffers from lung cancer.  He has been told by his doctors that he is an ideal candidate for a new treatment regime and that this would give him a life expectancy of up to ten years.  He is upset when Boldwood NHS Trust refuses to authorise the treatment.  In a letter explaining the decision, Boldwood NHS Trust says that it has been swamped by similar requests and that, for financial reasons, it is carefully screening applicants. The letter also explains that the decision was reached on the basis that Henry is a prominent supporter of the National Front (a far-right extremist political party in the UK), and that Boldwood NHS Trust did not want to provide treatment to him as it might be seen as providing implicit support for this political organisation.

Henry takes the letter to the Health Action Group, a well-established charity seeking to provide support and guidance for those with serious health problems.  They are very concerned that this decision could have adverse consequences for their members if other local health authorities and NHS trusts adopt the same policy, namely to screen patients based on their political views.

Advise Henry and Health Action Group as to whether and if so on what basis they can challenge the decision of Boldwood NHS Trust and as to their chances of success.
