A spokesperson for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust said:

“Our thoughts are with Charlie’s parents on receipt of this news which we know will be very distressing for them.

“Today’s decision by the European Court of Human Rights marks the end of what has been a very difficult process and our priority is to provide every possible support to Charlie’s parents as we prepare for the next steps.

“There will be no rush by Great Ormond Street Hospital to change Charlie’s care and any future treatment plans will involve careful planning and discussion.”
