In UK law, only paediatricians with a current medical licence can treat children under the age of 16. Therefore, at present Taymount Clinic CANNOT accept children under the age of 16 as clients.
This situation will change, when we engage a paediatrician to consult at Taymount Clinic. Until then, regrettably, we cannot treat children or provide advice to parents. It is an emotive subject and we fully understand parents’ desperation when they contact us for advice. FMT is still in a research phase and UK law has a strong view on parents who attempt a non-clinical and “experimental” treatment on a child.
Taymount Bahamas Clinic has a resident paediatrician and will consider clients between the ages of 5 and 18. Each case is considered on its own merit through consultation and of course, travel to The Bahamas is necessary for any FMT programmes offered.
