Re JM (A Child)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division following a consideration of the correct procedure, gave an NHS Trust leave to apply under s 10(2)(b) of the Children Act 1989 for an order that the trust could apply seeking permission under the inherent jurisdiction of the court to perform urgent surgery of a serious nature on a boy despite the resistence of both J and his parents.
