Regina (NM) v Islington Borough Council: [2012] EWHC 414 (Admin);  [2012] WLR (D)  52

“When considering whether a duty of assessment of needs for community care services had arisen under section 47(1) of the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 the interpretation of the words ‘may be in need of any such services’ covered both cases of present need and a narrow penumbra of cases of reasonably predictable future need.”
