No more appeals for Dr. Mattu

November 1st, 2012 by Clive Sheldon QC

The Supreme Court has refused Dr. Mattu permission to appeal against the Court of Appeal judgment, which held that the procedure by which he was dismissed did not attract protection under Article 6 of the European Convention of Human Rights: see Mattu v. The University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust [2012] EWCA Civ 641. (I blogged about this decision on May 18th 2012: ‘Dismissing a doctor does not engage Article 6 of the Convention’).

Lady Hale, Lord Mance and Lord Carnwath held that Dr. Mattu’s ‘Article 6 point is not arguable’.

This decision was plainly right. (John Cavanagh QC, of 11kbw, represented the NHS Trust).
