THE parents of brain tumour patient Ashya King have been slammed for putting their son ‘at risk’.
Brett and Naghmeh King have been deemed ‘irresponsible’ for discharging Ashya from a UK hospital and fleeing to Malaga by a child services report.
The six-year-old has since made a promising recovery following proton beam therapy in Prague and his family have moved back to the UK.
The Portsmouth Children Safeguarding report supported staff at Southampton General hospital where Ashya was being treated.
However, they added that there was evidence that the relationship ‘deteriorated over time’.
“This resulted in the parents removing their child from hospital, without discussion with medical staff, in order to take him abroad where they thought they would be able to access the services that they considered best met his needs,” it added.
“This action put him at risk.”
