Ongoing case before the President of the Family Division involving a terminally ill child. Members of chambers have appeared on behalf of the child via his Guardian. On 19 August 2015 the President granted declarations that it was lawful and in the best interests of the child for the NHS Trust to withhold life-saving medical treatment in the event that the condition of the 10-month-old deteriorated.
