The guardians of a truly sick young lady have started a High Court battle to take her to Italy for treatment.
Specialists at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel determine there is no expectation for five-year-old. Tafida Raqeeb will recoup from cerebrum damage and it is to her greatest advantage to be permitted to bite the dust.
Yet, clinicians at a medical clinic in Genoa have offered her treatment. Seven days in length hearing is being held before Justice MacDonald to set up if Tafida can go to Italy.
Legal advisors speaking to Tafida said the young lady, who has genuine mind harm, was being denied her entitlement to free development under European Union law.
Vikram Sachdeva QC stated: “Tafida and her folks have, on a fundamental level, a privilege to choose to get restorative consideration in another EU state. By declining her exchange, the trust is acting in break of that right.”
Managers at Barts Health NHS Trust, which runs the medical clinic needs the court to decide that ceasing “life-supporting treatment” is in the adolescent’s best advantages.
Tafida’s folks Shelina Begum, 39, and Mohammed Raqeeb, 45 need to move her to the Gaslini kids’ medical clinic in Genoa – which they guarantee is what could be compared to Great Ormond Street youngsters’ emergency clinic.
The preliminary procedures are necessary to end the not so distant future.
