Charlie Gard’s parents fight for ‘Charlie’s Law’

Connie Yates and Chris Gard, the parents of Charlie Gard who died last year, have won the backing of prominent doctors and peers to change the law to give parents more rights over what happens to sick children. Lord Mackay of Clashfern yesterday tabled an amendment to the Mental Capacity Bill that would give parents the power to move their children to a different hospital if they disagree with doctors and would compel hospitals to offer mediation with parents to resolve disputes before resorting to courts.
