A High Court Judge has decided on the exact details of how Charlie Gard’s life will be ended.
After all hope of experimental treatment faded due to the missed window of opportunity, a Judge has now denied the family their last wishes to spend a number of days with Charlie at home.
It has been decided that Charlie will die very quickly after being moved to a hospice and having his life-saving treatment withdrawn which has been approved by a High Court Judge.
Mr Justice Framcis approved a timetable that will govern the final moments of Charlie’s life who is not expected to reach his first Birthday.
Chris Gard and Connie Yates parents of Charlie disagreed with doctors from Great Ormond Street Hospital over how long he should now receive his life-support treatment for.
Medics believe he should be moved to a hospice within days and then shortly after his arrival life-support treatment should end.
His Parents after focusing their time on a long legal battle want to be able to spend some time with him and believe his life-support should be extended for 2 to 3 days.
Great Ormond Street said it deeply regrets “that profound and heartfelt differences” between Charlie’s doctors and his parents “have had to be played out in court over such a protracted period”.
Ms Yates said that the hospital had “denied us our final wish”.
Our thoughts are with Chris and Connie at this extremely difficult time.
