NHS Trust v Y (by his Litigation Friend, the Official Solicitor) and another

Medical treatment – Withdrawal of treatment. A declaration would be granted that it was not mandatory to bring before the Court of Protection the withdrawal of Clinically Assisted Nutrition and Hydration from a patient in circumstances where the clinical team and the patient's family had agreed that it was not in his best interests that he continued to receive that treatment. The Queen's Bench Division so held in granting the claimant NHS Trust's application for a declaration on those terms.
