UK: US doctor meets Great Ormond Street medics concerning Charlie Gard

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“The US doctor who has offered to treat terminally ill Charlie Gard has attended a meeting at Great Ormond Street Hospital to decide whether he should travel to America for therapy. Dr Michio Hirano will discuss Charlie’s condition with doctors treating him and independent specialists. Great Ormond Street has given Dr Hirano an honorary contract giving him the same status as its own physicians. It means he can examine Charlie and has full access to his medical records. The visit has been arranged as part of the latest stage of a court fight, brought by Charlie’s parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, from Bedfont, south west London, over whether he should be given experimental treatment in America.” (07/17/17)
