Application for permission to remove transplantable material for the purpose of transplantation. The application was refused.
The various individuals in this case are as follows:
The Court of Protection dismissed the application. The Court had no jurisdiction, no power, to exempt anyone from the statutory scheme under the Human Tissue Act 2004 and The Human Tissue Act 2004 (Persons who Lack Capacity to Consent and Transplants) Regulations 2006. This scarcely coherent application was totally without merit - it was misconceived and vexatious. The son, Dr Waghorn and Dr Jooste were ordered to pay costs in the sum of £7,671 to the HTA. A reporting restriction order was varied allowing the naming of the 2 doctors.
