Summary
"The high profile cases of Charlie Gard and Alfie Evans have raised the question of why the state intrudes into the exercise of parental responsibility and why parents may not be permitted to decide what is in the best interests of their child. This book undertakes a rigorous critical analysis of the case law concerned with the provision of healthcare to children over the past forty years. It argues that understanding of the cases as disputes over, and judicial resolution of, the best interests of the child fails to appreciate professional duties and public responsibilities for the welfare and protection of children that exist alongside parental responsibilities and which justify public, or state, intervention into family life and parental decision-making. It argues for a model for good medical practice and determination of individual cases based upon the regulation of assisted reproductive technologies of governance by Act, Authority and Code of Practice to provide more effective protection of the individual, professional and public interests involved. The book will be a valuable resource for academics and students of Medical Law, Healthcare Law, Family Law, Social Work, Medicine, Nursing and Bioethics"--
