The mum of 12-year-old Archie Battersbee, the little boy who has been living on life support, has started a new fight - to say goodbye to her son in a hospice instead of a hospital. Archie Battersbee's mum Hollie Dance had been fighting to allow him to continue his life on life support in hospital. But after her and Archie's dad Paul Battersbee's final application to court was rejected, Hollie admitted 'it's the end' and has been given a time and date for her son's life support machine being turned off.

Following the decision by the European Court of Human Rights not to intervene in the decision to withdraw life-support treatment from 12-year-old Archie Battersbee, his mother Hollie Dance said “It’s the end, it was the last thing, wasn’t it, and again our country have failed a 12-year-old child.” (Image: PA) Now Hollie has said she will “fight” to get her 12-year-old son moved into a hospice to 'say goodbye' instead of at the hospital. Speaking outside The Royal London Hospital, Hollie Dance said: “We’ve now got a fight to see whether we can get him out of here to have a dignified passing at a hospice. It’s just unfair.” She added: “Now I would like him out of this hospital. He came to this hospital to have an operation, this hospital failed him. “So, I would like him out of here as quick as possible really.

.” The family of Archie Battersbee said they intend to file an application to the High Court to transfer the 12-year-old to a hospice. Barts Health NHS Trust has said Archie’s life support will be withdrawn at 11am on Thursday unless an application regarding the hospice move is submitted by 9am, the boy’s family confirmed to the PA news agency. Archie is currently being kept alive by a combination of medical interventions, including ventilation and drug treatments, at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London. A spokeswoman for Archie Battersbee’s family told PA: “We think it is completely barbaric and absolutely disgusting that we’re not even allowed to choose where Archie takes his last moments. (Image: PA) “Hospices are well and truly designed for palliative and respite care. Archie is now obviously on palliative care so there is no reason whatsoever for him not to take his last moments at a hospice. “The hospice has said that they will take him.” Barts Health NHS Trust has said Archie’s condition is too unstable for a transfer and that moving him by ambulance to a different setting “would most likely hasten the premature deterioration the family wish to avoid, even with full intensive care equipment and staff on the journey”. A High Court order made in July requires that Archie remains at the Royal London Hospital while his treatment is withdrawn.
