The parents of the terminally ill Charlie Gard have agreed that their son the last days of his life wears out in a hospice. Connie Yates and Chris Gard wanted to initially, that their almost 1-year-old child in the home would die.

The hospital where the baby boy is nursed considered a hospice for practical reasons, a more appropriate place.

The judge gave both parties until Thursday, 12.00 pm (English time) opportunity to come to an agreement. The parents of Charlie to go there now and agree that he is being transferred to a hospice but would like to have a week with him spend before he died, reports the BBC.

The question is whether they are still as long as the time get. The doctors want the boy unnecessary suffering to save and not wait too long with him from the ventilator. The name of the levenseindekliniek should the court not be made public. Also the moment when Charlie is transferred remains private.


The parents tried initially to get Charlie for a couple of days with them at home could stay, before he died. But during the hearing of the case Wednesday, it became clear that this is not possible.

Mother Connie Yates shouted in the courtroom against the officially designated supervisor of her child: “What if it was your child? I hope that you are satisfied with yourself.”

Charlie Gard is last year’s born on the 4th of August.
