*Great Ormond Street Hospital v Yates and others

Minor – Medical treatment. Charlie Guard's parents accepted that his life could not be improved, and that the only remaining course was for him to be given palliative care and to permit him to die with dignity. Accordingly, it was the Family Division's duty to confirm its previous declarations, including that it was lawful and in Charlie's best interests for artificial ventilation to be withdrawn and that he not undergo nucleoside therapy, but the court refused to make a mandatory order.
