PW v Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and others

Mental health – Persons who lack capacity. The judge had not failed to appreciate and, therefore, give any or any adequate weight to RW's wishes and feeling, or overstated the risk that having the nasogastric tube in place would pose for him at home and the burden that would place on him. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, also refused the appellant's application for permission to appeal against the judge's decision that RW should not be named, although it made further orders as to the order's duration.
