But Armstrong said Wednesday that the family has found a doctor with previous intensive care experience who would be able to oversee a team at the hospice.
But Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), where Charlie is being cared for, said that moving Charlie home for his final days would not be practical and suggested instead that the baby be moved to a hospice. They said they'd been told the time during which treatment could have helped their son had passed - while the hospital court battle was going on. He said that, if the parties fail to reach an agreement, Charlie would be moved to hospice care anyway and his life support would be ended soon after.
Charlie Gard's parents know their treasured son is about to die.
He accused London's Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie is being treated, of putting obstacles in the way.
The judge said the name of the hospice and when Charlie was admitted would be private.
Butler-Cole said the parents should spend the last few days of Charlie's life with him, not with their lawyers.
But they said Charlie's parents were still in dispute with doctors over the detail of care plans.
"His care can not be simplified, it must be provided in a specialist setting by specialists", it said.
He said the couple felt there was a "brutality" in taking Charlie to a hospice. The hospital argued that neither allowing Gard to go home with the parents nor the parents' hospice plan were possible and that Gard should be kept at the hospital. Hospital staff would remain with Charlie until it was time to take him off life support.
Mr Gard and Ms Yates, who are in their 30s and come from Bedfont, west London, had originally asked Mr Justice Francis to rule that Charlie should be allowed to undergo a therapy trial in NY.
Charlie Gard's mother left the courtroom Wednesday in tears during a tense hearing over Gard's end of life care options.
Yates was in court for the hearing before judge Nicholas Francis. Further delay merely compounds the misery in this tragic case'.
"As I disclosed in court on July 13, I have relinquished and have no financial interest in the treatment being developed for Charlie's condition", he continued.
The judge is also considering placing Charlie in a hospice for his final days.
The hospital said the parents had refused the offer of a mediator, and palliative care consultants had had a "lengthy, hard and sadly but understandably in the awful circumstances unconstructive meeting with the parents".
