Guidance to accompany the pilot was published on 29 February for the benefit of HMCTS and the judiciary – but it is of equal relevance to practitioners. Amongst other matters, it deals with the anonmyisation of local authorities, which had been flagged up as causing confusion. In brief, the default position is that public bodies shall be named, but the names of care homes shall not be used.

If further issues such as these are identified, the guidance accompanying the pilot will no doubt be subject to further amendment in due course as all those involved continue to find their feet.

Other relevant documents including details of the standard wording for listing public cases and the Practice Direction are available here. Tor has also prepared an unofficial version of the order with annotations in plain English which can be used for explaining the effect of the order to litigants in person, available here.
