Hi Ms Greene

Thanks for your email. Would an email reply suffice?

Can you let your friends know that I am a senior consultant Infectious
Diseases Physician at the National University Hospital who has held a
Singapore medical license continuously since 1988-89. The Singapore
Code of Medical Ethics is very clear that doctors are not permitted to
refuse treatment to anyone - see

Consent issues are governed by the laws of Singapore. For children, 
"The legal right to give consent for children lies with persons of 
legal parental responsibility" - see

If a child has been legally adopted by an individual or a couple of 
any gender and there is legal evidence to support the guardianship of 
the adult over the child, there should be no issue with the legal 
guardian (or guardians). Singapore is however taking action on human 
trafficking and if the authorities suspect that the child was a victim 
of trafficking, then they are entitled to take whatever action they 
think necessary to protect the child. It is best to ensure that all 
the paperwork documenting legal guardianship of children is cast iron 
in order to avoid any misunderstandings.

I hope that helps
