Sophia Roper

Re CA (Natural Delivery or Caesarean Section) [2016] EWCOP 51 (08 December 2016)

In another application made very late in the pregnancy, Baker J lamented the applicant Trust’s failure to follow the FG guidelines which meant there was very limited time for the Official Solicitor to make proper enquiries on behalf of the woman concerned. Even though the application was made less than a fortnight before CA was due to give birth, the Judge refused the immediate order sought, and instead granted a four day adjournment to enable the Official Solicitor to visit CA and carry out some limited investigations.
