Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust v William Verden [2022] EWCOP 9

Kidney transplant The Trust originally sought a declaration that it was not in a 17-year-old boy's best interests to undergo a kidney transplant, but by the final hearing could not make its mind up. The court decided that William lacked capacity and that the transplant, with sedation and ventilation post-operatively, was in his best interests.
