Or consider any kind of direct action against a hospital because of decisions concerning any individual patient.

It's irresponsible.

What is this about?

Charlie Gard Je.

There have been some suggestions of direct action against (the fabulous) Great Ormond Street Hospital due to a contentious ongoing case.

It's never the way to deal with such issues.

JeReviens Thu 29-Jun-17 22:00:21

Thank you Purple. I hadn't heard anything about this being on the cards.

KeiraKnightleyActsWithHerTeeth Thu 29-Jun-17 22:00:23

Are people really suggesting this?
It's such a terribly sad situation from both the point of view of the parents and the medics involved.

SerfTerf Thu 29-Jun-17 22:01:32

Yes it's being discussed and suggested. It will cause distress and difficulties and it won't achieve the aim.

They are scum / and should be imprisoned

With all the shit in the world and London how dare they angry

CommunistLegoOoOoBloc Thu 29-Jun-17 22:17:16

I obviously don't agree with picketing for this particular issue at all, but are they planning to disrupt staff entering etc, or just stand with signs?

TheweewitchRoz Thu 29-Jun-17 22:17:59

Completely agree Serf - very sad all round though, definitely no winners in this case.

SerfTerf Thu 29-Jun-17 22:19:04

They don't seem very clear what they're planning, which is even more worrying. It's a public FB group.

WankYouForTheMusic Thu 29-Jun-17 22:28:07

Yanbu. Anyone carrying on like that should be barred from the NHS.

KeiraKnightleyActsWithHerTeeth Thu 29-Jun-17 22:29:40

Who is it who suggesting this? Random people? Families? People from a support group?

It will be incredibly disruptive to staff, patients and no doubt the grieving family.

WankYouForTheMusic Thu 29-Jun-17 22:34:00

In the Facebook group.

RaspberryBeretHoopla Thu 29-Jun-17 22:37:09

No way anyone should picket a hospital or NHS staff. YANBU.

missiondecision Thu 29-Jun-17 22:37:22

This is very worrying news. It won't achieve anything but prolong the sadness.
It's a sad fact that some babies die. I have two dead nephews, it's harsh and may appear cold hearted but it's a fact that doctors are not able save everyone.

There's a complete shower of idiots posting on there. I hope that they never need to use GOSH's services, imagine the distress they could cause not just to the staff but also all the kids and parents there. This isn't about Charlie, they don't care about him, this is rent-a-mob stirred up by the gutter press.

HeyRoly Thu 29-Jun-17 22:37:52

Stupid, stupid people.

FidgetSpinner Thu 29-Jun-17 22:39:50

That would be incredibly insensitive.

SerfTerf Thu 29-Jun-17 23:16:30

They seem to have switched their energies to swamping the NHS' chief executive's email inbox with rants. For now at least.

TrueColors Fri 30-Jun-17 06:25:33

They're a shower of shits. My sympathies lie wholeheartedly with Charlie and his loving parents.

Imagine taking your child for treatment there and seeing these Facebook hunning twats!

Saiman Fri 30-Jun-17 06:28:42

The famies facbook page is creating so much shit. Its not helping anyone. Especially charlie and his parents.

Picketing a hospital is disgracful. Reading their posts on fb iy clear most of them dont even have a clue whats going on and havent even bothered reading the court judgment.

Its disgusting. The parents need to think of all the other sick children and their parents and try to put a stop to this.

TidyDancer Fri 30-Jun-17 06:44:17

I have huge sympathy with the parents here as anyone does, but they have been posting inflammatory articles on that Facebook page which is only helping to whip up this frenzy (along with the media focus). They don't want privacy, they are clinging onto any shred of hope they can that something will change the outcome here and if picketing the hospital gives them (false) hope they will not discourage it. I don't think they are being advised or supported very well and beside the medical staff I suspect they are surrounded by the wrong type of people who are possibly not helping them in the right way.

Neutrogena Fri 30-Jun-17 06:50:15

Do they want GOSH to keep giving treatment (cruel and inhumane) or withdraw it?

Saiman Fri 30-Jun-17 07:04:19

Many of them donr know what they want.

Some wany treatment to continue and then him to be sent to the US. Even though the US doctor admitted its not going to help.

Some want treatment to continue indefinitely.

Some get that treatment has to stop but are demanding he die at home. Not thibking about how thats achieved, especially with the threats flying around.

Some want them to wait until monday to withdraw treatment. forgetting that the judgment went the way it did for a reason. Ie the best thing for charlie. And that waiting until monday is just prolonging this for him.
