Nuffield Council on Bioethics Call for Evidence: Independent review of disagreements in the care of critically ill children in England.

Published: 13th April 2023

We welcome this initiative from the Nuffield Council on Bioethics (NCoB) and the opportunity to contribute to it. Many of our members work in hospitals, including a number in paediatrics, neurology, neurorehabilitation, and hospice care. Tragic and complex cases like those of Charlie Gard and Archie Battersbee have prompted much discussion between us. They raise profound and troubling questions about the power of medical technology, the duties and responsibilities of doctors and parents, and the role of the law courts, as well as the impact of global media coverage and social media campaigns. We hope our observations will be of some help to reviewers.
