Nurse Lucy Letby is set to appeal her murder convictions.
The 33-year-old was given a whole-life term last month after being found guilty of murdering seven babies and attempting to kill another six.
Now, Letby's legal team has lodged an application for permission to appeal the ruling, according to the Court of Appeal Criminal Division.
Court staff said today (Friday 15 September) that they had received an application for permission to appeal against all of the nurse’s convictions.
Typically, applications for permission to appeal against a crown court decision are considered by a judge without a hearing.
If this is refused, people have the right to renew their bid for permission at a full court hearing before two or three judges.
The 33-year-old's trial at Manchester Crown Court concluded on 18 August with the jury giving their decisions.
Mr Justice Goss told the former NHS nurse there was 'premeditation, calculation and cunning in your actions' as he handed down a whole-life order at Manchester Crown Court.
Addressing the nurse, he said: “You acted in a way that was completely contrary to the normal human instincts of nurturing and caring for babies and in gross breach of the trust that all citizens place in those who work in the medical and caring professions.
“The babies you harmed were born prematurely and some were at risk of not surviving but in each case you deliberately harmed them, intending to kill them.”
Letby was not there in person to attend her sentencing, having previously indicated to the court that she did not intend to return to the dock, take part in her sentencing hearing or follow proceedings via video link from prison.
The judge told Letby she would be provided copies of his remarks and the personal statements of the families of her victims.
Letby's last appearance in the courtroom was on 16 August, she had been taken from prison to court but would not come up from the cells.
Back in August, it was revealed that police were carrying out an investigation involving up to 4,000 children who may have been impacted by Letby's prolific offending between 2015 and 2016.
This means that despite having already been given a whole life order, it's possible that Letby will face further charges in the coming months and years as more evidence is analysed.
