Argyll and Bute Council, Re Judicial Review: SCS 17 Oct 2007

Argyll and Bute Council asked the court to review a decision by the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman that they had a duty to provide funding for the personal care of a resident over 65 in a private care home. The Council argued that their duty as a local authority to provide funding for the personal care of people over 65 arose only where the personal care was provided by them, and not where it was provided through an entirely private arrangement between the resident or his or her relatives and the care home.
