star this property answer text <p>The Department does not issue guidance on legal action in best interests cases. Decisions around withdrawal of treatment in such difficult circumstances are never easy. It is important that families and medical experts communicate and, where possible, reach agreement on the best interest of the child. Medical ethics committees and mediation services are often involved in such cases, but each case will be different and must be considered on its own unique circumstances by those who are involved – the National Health Services trust, clinicians and parents/patients. Health care professionals have a duty to act in the best interests of their patients and when doctors and families do not agree about the best interests of a child the Courts can been asked, by either party, to make an independent judgement, as in the case of Tafida Raqeeb.</p><p>The Department does not collect information on the cost of best interest cases.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
