Re VW; NK v VW (2010) COP 27/10/10 11744555

NK sought (a) to have his mother VW removed from a care home (where she was detained under a DOLS authorisation) and placed in one more local to him, and consequently (b) to have more frequent contact than permitted by the current DOLS authorisation and (c) to be appointed welfare and financial deputy. He was refused permission to make his applications, because of medical evidence that to move VW would be detrimental to her welfare.


Thanks to Alex Ruck Keene (39 Essex Chambers) for providing the judgment.
