Donor Conception Information Service

The Donor Conception Information Service (DCIS) was established to support people involved in donor conception treatment in Western Australia. The service is based at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) and is delivered by allied health professionals.

The DCIS provides a Reproductive Technology Register (register) of people involved in donor conception, including donor-conceived people, donors and parents or guardians of a donor-conceived child.

The register enables people to share information about themselves on the register. While some people involved in donor conception have a legal right to access information, others can submit their details, including their contact preferences, to match with those they are connected to through donor conception treatment.

When a match is made on the DCIS register, DCIS will contact both parties separately in writing, asking them to get in touch.  Individual appointments will be offered to both parties to clarify their preferences, expectations and implications of contact.

DCIS will facilitate the indirect communication of these preferences with both parties by emails or phone, in the hope that an agreement can be reached.  DCIS can then offer suggestions of suitable and appropriate ways for parties to progress towards contact, if this is a shared wish.
