Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children Foundation NHS Trust v NO and others

Minor – Medical treatment. The Family Division declared that it would be lawful and in the best interests of an eight-month-old girl not to receive or have given invasive or aggressive treatment in the form of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, inotropes, intubation and mechanical ventilation, and not to have the insertion of intra-osseous needles, central venous lines and further chest drains, despite her parents' opposition. It was not in the child's best interests to carry out the intervention and invasive treatments which her parents sought.
