DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: Wednesday 27th June at 5 pm

Question: Who should be able to decide whether or not life support keeping children alive should end? Should the medical professionals, judiciary or the family have the final say?

The recent case of Alfie Evans brought the discussion regarding the removal of life support treatment for children to light once more. The medical professionals at Alder Hay hospital argued that the ventilatory support was unkind and inhumane and therefore not in Alfie’s best interests, however the family disagreed.  There were a number appeals and the case proceeded twice to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled that treatment should be withdrawn and did not agree that Alfie should be released from hospital care in Alder Hay to be transported for treatment in Italy. In no more than 250 words, please discuss who you think should be allowed to determine whether or not life support for a child should be withdrawn and why?

Training Contracts

We always welcome speculative applications and will keep the details of promising candidates on file for future vacancies. please send your CV and covering letter to Director Ian Barnes who is based primarily at the Wrexham office at 10 Grosvenor Road, Wrexham, LL11 1SD or by email to [email protected].
