UK Court Ruling for Clinicians in Medical Futility Dispute

As we explained in Chest last year, UK courts have issued dozens and dozens of published opinions in medical futility conflicts.  This provides significant guidance and clarity as to how these cases should be resolved.  

The latest of these cases involves an 8-month old baby at Great Ormond Street Hospital.  The judgment was published a few days ago.
