Charlie Gard's parents back in court to bring son home to die

The Truth About The Hospital In The Charlie Gard Case

Hospital chiefs said in a statement that they are not in a position to know what might have happened six months ago and can not know if Charlie would have responded to the experimental therapy. After exhausting treatment options in London, a judge ruled that taking Charlie to the USA for an untested experimental treatment would do more harm than good. The treatment has been used in cases similar to Charlie's, but not his particular condition.

"It now seems to hinge partly on how long parents want to keep Charlie alive at home".

Yet Gard and Yates never gave up on their son and continued fighting for him to receive treatment. Britain's courts, backed by the European Court of Human Rights, refused permission, saying it would prolong his suffering without any realistic prospect of helping the child.

A previously scheduled hearing on Monday was said to review "fresh evidence" from the Yates family in a series of long court battles and public attention over the court case.

Charlie's parents are embroiled in a fight with doctors over the circumstances of the terminally-ill baby's death.

However, it said it hoped Professor Michio Hirano, the doctor who advised Ms Yates and Mr Gard on care in the U.S., would also "find much upon which to reflect".

The hospital believes Charlie has suffered irreversible brain damage " a view his parents have challenged.

Below is the full statement issued in the High Court on Tuesday afternoon on behalf of the hospital (GOSH).

The court heard that a team of two to three intensive care doctors and four to six intensive care nurses would be required along with the equipment, including a ventilator that could not fit through the front door of Charlie's home. All our efforts have been for him.

On Monday, Chris Gard and Yates gave up their fight to take Charlie to the USA to be treated by Dr. Michio Hirano, a professor of neurology at the Columbia University Medical Center in NY. "It seems really upsetting after everything we've been through to deny us this".

In an emotional statement, the couple said the new scans showed it was now "too late" for Charlie to benefit from nucleoside therapy and said they would allow his ventilator to be removed "before his first birthday" so he could "slip away" and "be with the angels". A whole lot of wasted time. It's now unfortunately too late for him but it's not too late for others with this terrible disease and other diseases.

Yates added: "We promised Charlie every day we would take him home. We owe it to him to not let his life be in vain".

There is no love like the love that a parent has for their child. He says discussions will be held in private about when Charlie's life-support will be switched off.
