The High Court is expected to deliver judgement today on the case of a woman who died at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridgeshire.
Janet Tracey's family claim two 'do not resuscitate' orders were added to her medical notes without her knowledge.
She was diagnosed with terminal cancer in February last year - just a few weeks later, she broke her neck in a car crash.
She died a month later. The hospital has said it did seek consent.
