Thomas v Lambeth (2017)


This was an important case even though it was only in the County Court. The Judge allowed an appeal against a vulnerability decision where Lambeth had relied on advice from Now Medical. That advice consisted of stating that the applicant was not vulnerable because they did not suffer from conditions which the applicant had not claimed to suffer from but ignoring the conditions which the applicant did claim to suffer from.
