Missing Child - URGENT REQUEST

Time is critical in finding 5-year old Ashya, who requires urgent treatment for a brain tumour but was removed without consent from Southampton General yesterday. Please share the following plea from Hampshire Police, particularly if you have friends, family or colleagues in France (where he is believed to have been taken).

Some random early thoughts on this.....

Is it "illegal" for parents to remove a child from hospital?
Maybe he is being taken to a foreign hospital where care is thought to be "better"
Maybe he is being taken to some sunny nice spot for his last hours
I understand he is not in France now anyway
Parents and SEVEN children in a Hyundai? How difficult is that to find?

One thing IS clear-we have absolutely no idea what the facts actually are.

Completely agree, but am inclined to think the clinicians and police will have a far better appreciation of the facts and would not have issued such a plea if they didn't believe finding him (urgently) to be in the best interests of the child.

I run the charity that helped fund the specialist unit in which he was being cared for. Though I have no knowledge of this child's case, I believe you'd be hard pushed to find a children's neurosurgery unit with a better record - anywhere.

Just out of curiosity, it wasn't an 03 plated silver Hyundai people carrier type thing was it? ( with roof box)

I noticed one driving towards me a couple days ago fully loaded with kids in the back a few kms from the Mt St Michel over here in Normandy.

This case just goes from bad to worse. The parents are banged up in a foreign jail, yet have not been charged with any offence. The poor kid at the centre of it all, is in a strange hospital under police guard, where no one speaks his language. The rest of his family are banned from seeing him. Where is the "care" in all that?
Absolutely tragic & appalling. The authorities at the centre of it all, especially the British, should hang their heads in shame, this is the work of a totalitarian state.

They have gone to Spain to get proton therapy that isn't available over here, I've been at the mercy of Southampton general hospital and still am, the care, if you're in over the weekend is zero and it's hard to explain that you can't eat solid food to a foreigner who's trying to give you something on a plate that looks like it's just come from the other end.
I can't see what law they've broken, if any, I wouldn't say taking him to a better form of treatment was endangering his life, maybe they've hurt some doctors pride who's doing the best he can with what he has.

I think you've hit it on the head there Biff. The whole thing smacks of bruised egos & "I know best". There was a lot if back pedalling from the spokesman for Soton General on the news last night.


.....sh1t happens.......

I was chatting to a young hospital doc at the weekend who had just resigned her post. She painted a damning picture of the current state of NHS hospitals. Wasteful, ego driven chaos.
