In the recent Mathieson case, the Supreme Court found that rules suspending payment of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) after 84 days in hospital breached the human rights of a severely disabled child.

The Court didn’t say that that the hospital rules would be unlawful in all cases. Instead this will depend on the individual circumstances.

However, where a family continues to provide a high level of care to their child in hospital, they should be able to use the Mathieson judgement to get their DLA payments reinstated.
