Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Can you please explain your situation a little more?
Yes I am reading this and looking at the law.
When he signed the document I assume has knew what he was doing and had capacity?
It's bad news then I am afraid. Someone is entitled to refuse medial threatment on religious grounds.
If they knew what they were doing and had capacity then someone can refuse treatment. This can not be overruled b a court. Someone is entitled to make their own decision.
Sadly as such it can't be overridden unless it can be shown they didn't know what it meant when they gave the statement.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?

I am sorry it's not better news. Can I clairfy anything?
Correct. When he made the decision he had capacity and knew what he was doing.
The coma is a consequence of the decision. I am sorry
