Sam Karim QC has been instructed by FTA LAW to lead a judicial review challenge of the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care’s ‘no jab, no job’ mandatory vaccination policy for healthcare workers (as contained in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) (No.2) Regulations 2021).
An upcoming change to the law means that all frontline NHS staff will need to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by 1 April 2022. The policy of mandatory vaccinations applies to all healthcare practitioners performing a CQC regulated activity, regardless of whether the practice is private, NHS or a mixture of both.
Sam is a leading specialist in Judicial Review. His involvement, in this case, adds to the catalogue of successful cases led by him in relation to COVID-19, including the removal of the 10 pm curfew for the hospitality industry, and the 3 Tier system for restriction.
