King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust v T, V and ZT

Child – Protection. A baby born by emergency caesarean section, he later suffered acute cardio-respiratory deterioration and required mechanical ventilation. The NHS Trust caring for the baby brought the matter to court to ask for permission to withdraw ventilation, which would inevitably result in the baby's death. The parents did not agree to the withdrawal of ventilation. The Family Division held that it was in the child's best interests to withdraw ventilation.
