The parents of terminally-ill Charlie Gard and hospital bosses have been unable to reach an agreement about where he will spend his final days.
Connie Yates and Chris Gard had asked to be allowed to to take their son home to die after ending their legal case.
For practical reasons, Great Ormond Street Hospital said a hospice was the most appropriate place to care for him.
Mr Justice Francis has been hearing their arguments in the High Court and has yet to rule.
The public and press have been asked to leave the court for private discussions to take place about Charlie’s remaining time.
The family’s lawyer Grant Armstrong told the court a doctor had been identified to care for Charlie in a hospice.
Some nurses from the London hospital where he is being treated had also volunteered their help, he said.
