The parents of 11-month-old Charlie Gard are still battling in court over whether he’s allowed to die at home.

They have rallied for help, asking for Charlie to spend what could be his last few days in hospice care.

A doctor has already come forward, and nurses from Charlie’s hospital, willing to work to answer the plea of Charlie’s mother.

The judge who has been presiding over the case may now have to decide if an agreement cannot be made between the hospital caring for Charlie and his parents, whether to satisfy his parents’ wishes.

Per Daily Mail:

Charlie Gard’s Great Ormond Street nurses have vowed to care for him on their days off to help him die peacefully in a hospice, the High Court heard today.

[Charlie’s parents] had said their ‘last wish’ was to bathe him and put him to bed before he died but have now found a doctor to help him to a hospice and Charlie’s nurses have volunteered to work 12 hour shifts to care for the little boy to the end.

It is understood the current proposal from the family’s side is that he die in a hospice after a few days.

A lawyer representing the family of Charlie Gard found a doctor and nurses willing to take care of the child:

Barrister Grant Armstrong, who leads Charlie’s parents’ legal team, said a doctor with intensive care experience had been found to help the family.

He said: ‘Enquiries made overnight of the possibility of care for Charlie have identified a doctor travelling to court as we speak. He is a doctor who has previous experience in surgery and intensive care who could lead a team of paediatric doctors.

‘We believe we are able to put in place a plan of nursing staff, funded privately.

‘Several nurses from Great Ormond Street have volunteered to assist. May I pay tribute to these nurses.’

The nurses are from the hospital which has been caring from Charlie and would be working 8 – 12 hours on their days off:

Two nurses would be needed for each shift lasting eight to 12 hours and GOSH staff have volunteered to work on their days off or between shifts at the hospital.

Mr Armstrong, referring to a list of requirements set out by GOSH for Charlie’s care outside the hospital, said: ‘We believe we will be able to deal with that and have the appropriate nursing staff available.’

Charlie’s mother is understandably upset from the court decision and issued the plea for help:

It came hours after Charlie’s mother Connie Yates issued a desperate last-minute appeal to ‘any paediatric intensive care doctor to come forward’ to help them.

Miss Yates said last night: ‘We promised Charlie every day we would take him home. It seems really upsetting, after everything we’ve been through, to deny us this.’

But it appears the family now believe they would be able to satisfy demands for Charlie to be well looked after in a hospice by medics in his final days.

Mr Justice Francis will be asked to decide where Charlie will die unless a last minute deal can be done between Charlie’s family and the hospital.
