*Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust v Yates and others

Minor – Medical treatment. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the parents' appeal against the judge's decision that it would not be in Charlie Gard's best interests to undergo nucleoside therapy overseas and that Great Ormond Street Hospital's application to remove him from a ventilator should be granted. On the basis of the judge's findings, there was no viable alternative treatment for Charlie, such that the parents' argument that there was a new category of child medical treatment cases deriving from Re Aysha King (A Child) ([2014] All ER (D) 47 (Sep)) did not arise.
