We are finding that some LAs and health authorities are not responding when a parent appeals under the  National Trial. In this case the Tribunal can issue an ‘order’ asking the authorities to, for example, send information or carry out an assessment so that appeal can proceed on the health and/or social care component too. You may have to tell the Tribunal that your LA or CCG is not responding by sending a “request for change” form (SEND 7) using the process described above.
