Brick Court Chambers instructed in Charlie Gard appeal


An appeal to the Court of Appeal is being brought by the parents of Charlie Gard, a baby suffering from a rare mitochondrial disorder. Charlie cannot breathe unaided and relies on artificial ventilation to keep him alive.  On 11th April Great Ormond Street Hospital obtained a declaration from the High Court enabling the hospital to discontinue ventilation and which has the effect of preventing Charlie’s parents from arranging treatment in the USA.
