5.30 Surrogacy

If hospital staff become aware that a baby who is about to be born, or has just been born is the product of commissioning and have grounds to doubt the commissioners identity / suitability to care for the baby, or the degree of voluntarism (payment beyond reasonable expenses is unlawful), they should contact Surrey Children's Services - see Contacts and Referrals Procedure.

The responses to any such contact should be proportionate to what are likely to be very individual circumstances and legal advice will probably be required.
