Kirklees Council v RE: FD 3 Oct 2014

Application by Kirklees Council for various declarations in relation to a young baby boy, SE, who was desperately ill in hospital. In essence, Kirklees applied for a declaration that it was not in SE’s interests to receive further life sustaining treatment. By the time the case was heard, the Local Authority applied for a further declaration, namely that it was lawful for his treating clinicians to provide him with palliative care only.
