Description

Disputes About Life Sustaining Treatment for Children – Who Decides?

Charlie Gard, Alfie Evans, Tafida Raqeeb – three much loved children with catastrophic brain damage whose parents and doctors could not agree on what was best. When and why do courts become involved and where does the power lie? Katie Gollop QC, who acted for the NHS Trusts in Gard and Raqeeb, explores some of the issues and pressures that arise when parents seek private treatment abroad.
