Abstract: First paragraph: When a child is sick and parents and doctors disagree about what to do next, who is best placed to make that decision? This is a tricky but not uncommon question – with a number of recent high-profile legal cases highlighting the limits of parents’ rights to decide what treatments should be offered.
