Abstract

Examines Great Ormond Street Hospital v Yates (CA) on whether the court had the inherent jurisdiction to rule that it was not in the best interests of a child suffering from mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome for his parents to take him to the US where a doctor was willing to administer experimental nucleoside therapy, given that his UK medical team believed this would be futile and that life-sustaining treatment should be withdrawn instead.
