President’s Bulletin 8th March 2021

PUBLISHED March 8, 2021

Listing of first hearings:

HMCTS London have already begun returning to the Transforming Summary Justice listing timescale.  All GAP cases should now be listed 14 days from charge and by the 6th April all NGAP cases will be listed after 28 days again.

Nightingale Court: Aldersgate House, Barbican

In prior messages I introduced this new venue which will hear Crown Court work.  I can now share a presentation containing useful information for those attending

Lateral Flow Test Pilots in Southwark, Snaresbrook and Croydon

Southwark’s LFT pilot will be extended until the 23rd April and you can read about improvements being made to its operation here.  In addition, Snaresbrook and Croydon will, from Monday, be piloting home testing kits for court users, including solicitors.  Please read about this new scheme here.  I hope those who are attending these venues sign up to support this pilot which has the potential to increase safety for those attending court.

Kind regards,

Mark Troman
