Two international experts to attend meeting in Charlie Gard case

The American doctor who has offered to treat Charlie Gard has attended a meeting at Great Ormond Street Hospital which will help decide if the 11-month-old goes to the USA for treatment.

Dr. Michio Hirano, professor of neurosurgery from the Columbia University Medical Center in NY, gave the terminally ill Charlie a brain scan on Monday to determine whether it's worthwhile to give the baby an experimental therapy in the United States.

The identity of a second worldwide expert is subject to media reporting restrictions.

However, the judge allowed Charlie's mother to attend the meeting after her lawyer argued she had carried out extensive research into her son's condition and was informed enough to contribute and listen to doctors' perspectives.

Mr Hirano, who has been given full access to Charlie Gard's medical records and an opportunity to examine the youngster, spent four and a half hours at GOSH on Monday.
