Teenager wins right to refuse treatment11th November 2008
A teenage girl who has a hole in her heart and is terminally ill can go ahead with her plans not to have a transplant operation after her local trust dropped its case against her.
Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust had wanted to force her to go ahead with the surgery. However Hannah Jones said she did not want to have the heart transplant and wanted to die "with dignity". Her father Andrew Jones said: "The threat that somebody could come and forcibly remove your daughter from you against her wishes, against our wishes, was quite upsetting really."
