Victoria Butler-Cole and Annabel Lee are representing the daughter of a woman known as Mrs P who is a minimally conscious state following a subarachnoid haemorrhage sustained in December 2016.

Mrs P’s two daughters and long-term partner consider that the continuation of CANH goes against what Mrs P would have wanted, and have asked the court to sanction the provision of palliative care in a hospice. The hospital Trust has sought an order that Mrs P should be discharged to a specialist nursing home.  At the hearing on 16-18 October 2017, the Official Solicitor (represented by Vikram Sachdeva QC) formed the view that withdrawal of CANH was in Mrs P’s best interests.

Judgment is anticipated next week.

Victoria Butler-Cole and Annabel Lee are instructed, on a pro bono basis, by Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.
