I was treated for breast cancer last year. I am getting regular check-ups and have been told that my prognosis is good – can I adopt? As part of the adoption process, you will have a medical with your GP. Our medical advisor will receive the results from this and assess your health and how it might affect your ability to care for a child. If you have been receiving treatment for a particular condition our medical advisor would contact your consultant or other specialist as part of his assessment. Anyone who is hoping to adopt should ask their GP if they have any concerns about their health.
