High Court rejects appeal to transfer him to hospice to die

The judge said: “Archie’s best interests must be at the heart of all the conclusions of this court.

“When you consider the family’s wishes, why those wishes are being kept, the facilities at the hospice, what Archie could likely have wanted, … the risks involved with a transfer … and the increasing fragility of his health, I am convinced that.” Reconsidering the balancing exercise, his best interest remains, as set out (in the 15 July decision), that he should remain in hospital if treatment is discontinued.

“The one from Dr. F. outlined circumstances of the physical arrangements at the hospital and the arrangements that can be made will ensure that Archie’s best interests remain at the heart of the final arrangements so that he can die peacefully and privately in the embrace of his loved ones.

“The parents confirmed in principle their willingness to cooperate on these arrangements in their attorneys’ email dated August 2.”

The child has been in a coma since being found unconscious at his home in Southend, Essex on April 7.

Ms Dance believes he was taking part in an online challenge at the time he fell ill. He has not regained consciousness since then. High Court rejects appeal to transfer him to hospice to die
