Gresham Lecture: The Child & Medical Treatment: The Chance to Live, or Die with Dignity?

01 May 2019

What happens when doctors and parents cannot agree on whether a child should be given experimental medical treatment? Why is there any question mark over a parent’s right to decide if medical treatment for their child continues? 

From the parents of Aysha King who successfully secured proton beam therapy for their son to the despair surrounding baby Charlie Gard and his life-limiting genetic disorder: how does the court make decisions that can potentially prolong life or bring about the death of a child?

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. 

6-7pm Thursday 2nd May 2019

Barnards Inn Hall

By Professor Jo Delahunty QC 

Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture
