The Medical Committee is a sub committee of the Tree of Hope Board which is authorised to carry out the following duties, seeking professional or other advice which it may consider necessary.

• Reviewing requests for new treatments and services through analysis of research available on the efficacy of the treatment or service. A decision regarding support for the treatment or service will be made by the Committee via email or conference call following a review of documentation/research available.
• Reviewing new illnesses or syndromes to ensure that any support offered by Tree of Hope is within our objects and appropriate.
• Reviewing the outcomes of a sample of treatments and services, ensuring that money has been spent according to the fundraised aims and that the treatment has had the desired effect.
• Reviewing a sample of historical cases (3+ years ago) to understand the longer term impact of services or treatments undertaken.
