An NHS Hospital Trust v GM and others

Declaration – Procedure. A declaration was made that it was in the best interests of 14-week-old baby, H, that his ventilation tube be removed. The Family Division held, amongst other considerations, that the medical evidence had been unanimous that H was going to die very soon and that there was no quality of life for H. Orders concerning reporting restrictions and the presence of the police at H's bedside at and around the time of his death were also made.
