Charlie Gard's mum at clinical meeting with USA doctor

CHARLIE Gard has been given U.S. citizenship to allow him to fly to America for treatment.

A US doctor flew into the U.K. Monday alongside other medical experts to examine Charlie Gard and determine Gard's chances of improvement with treatment.

The move comes despite a NY doctor failing to convince Great Ormond Street medics that his experimental treatment offers a lifeline to the terminally-ill baby.

In that statement, the hospital said: "It has been and remains the unanimous view of all those caring for charlie at Great Ormond Street that withdrawal of ventilation and palliative care are all that the hospital can offer him consistent with his welfare".

Miss Yates was allowed to attend the summit after convincing the High Court judge she should be there.

"Not only that, but they said it would be futile and would prolong Charlie's suffering", the hospital's statement added.

Dr. Michio Hirano, the American neurologist specializing in treating rare genetic conditions is meeting in London with other specialists treating Charlie Gard, assessing the critically ill 11-month-old for the first time. "This is not an issue about money or resources, but absolutely about what is right for Charlie".

Great Ormond Street has given Dr Hirano an honorary contract, which the hospital said gives him the same status as its own physicians.

It is the first time for visiting clinicians to contribute with the benefit of having examined Charlie and viewed the 11-month-old's medical records and most recent scans.

The hospital believes Charlie has suffered irreversible brain damage and that life support should be switched off, allowing him to "die with dignity".

Doctors at the Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Gard is on life support, maintain that Gard's condition can not be improved and insist that he be denied Hirano's treatment and taken off life support.

He is due to stage further hearings later this month following this week's specialist gathering.

But the couple say there is new evidence and want Mr Justice Francis to carry out a fresh analysis of their case.
