Subject: RE: BS: The Very Sad Case Of Charlie Gard
Re Senofou's last post: yes, RIP Charlie Gard, and sincere condolences to his parents.
It has been a very tough time for all concerned: modern medicine has led to higher expectations, sometimes unrealistic, it has to be said. I was a Paediatric house officer in the 1970s and later, a GP. We faced ethical dilemmas, but none as complex as this. And such discussions were largely conducted in private, in close consultation with parents and other interested parties, not emblazoned across the world through "social media".
Please, let's have some peace and closure now. RIP Charlie.
