Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust v AA and others

Declaration – Procedure. The Family Division granted the applicant NHS Foundation Trust's application to invoke the inherent jurisdiction of the High Court for declaratory relief in relation to serious medical treatment for the first respondent, AA. In the instant case, there had been unanimity amongst the clinicians that the proposed treatment was the safest option for AA. It had been self-evident that AA had lacked the capacity to take the medical decision for herself and the case made by the NHS Trust had been compelling.
