AD and OD v the United Kingdom
This is a European Case where another child with a genetic problem was thought to have been a victim of child abuse.
This is an important point that is normally ignored by the system.At the hearing, Dr R., the consultant paediatrician who had overseen O.D.'s care at Bristol stated her opposition to the care plan; she considered that O.D. had a close relationship with his family and removal would cause emotional trauma equivalent to bereavement.
I think the system has got a lot worse since this case. I know of cases in Bury that are much worse.
