Once we have been contacted by parents, we engage in intensive and regular consultations with them, to explore all of the possible treatment options at every stage of the illness. When there are treatment options being conducted at other hospitals, we work with the parents to help them enrol their child there to benefit from that specific treatment before returning to the DCEz to continue our programme.

If we do not believe we can treat a child to the child’s benefit, we will always inform the parent promptly so that they can explore other options, both in terms of treatment and medical facilities.
