Theresa May has said that the hospital treating Charlie Gard, the critically ill baby whose parents are seeking experimental treatment for him in the U.S., will "always consider any offers on new information" about his welfare.
The hospital treating Charlie Gard would consider any offers or new information relating to the "wellbeing of a desperately ill child", Theresa May said.

Rare-disease specialists at Vatican-owned Rome children's hospital Bambino Gesù are working with other worldwide experts to map out an experimental treatment protocol for Charlie, hospital chief Mariella Enoc said.
The family's local MP, Labour's Seema Malhotra, used PMQs to say that while the chances of the U.S. treatment helping Charlie were low, doctors could say within three months whether he was responding.
PA HOPE Theresa May said she is confident doctors would consider help from abroad
London hospital refused a transfer request from Bambino Gesu hospital in Rome for legal reasons. Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice, also wrote: "There is another round of appeals available for #CharlieGard before the European Court of Human Rights".
Columnist Katie Hopkins tweeted Tuesday: "Charlie Gard's life should be in his parents' hands".
The news comes after a United Kingdom court ruled the infant's life support machine should be turned off. "He is praying for them, in the hope that their desire to accompany and care for their own child until the end will be respected", the director of the Holy See Press Office, Greg Burke, said in a statement.
The statement came on Sunday, as members of the public protested outside Buckingham Palace against turning off the baby's life support.
Bambino Gesu hospital in Rome asked if it can take over care for the terminally ill 11-month-old that is going to be taken off life support at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, which cared for the baby since October 2016. Last week, his parents lost a legal battle to take him to the USA for trial therapy. While it is different symptoms - Charlie is deaf, blind, brain damaged and unable to breathe on his own - her son has faced his own difficulties.
Chris Gard and Charlotte Yates have raised millions in order to try a last-chance treatment in the US which could potentially save their son. However, parental rights are not absolute, and in cases in which doctors and parents disagree, the courts may exercise objective judgment in a child's best interest.
Previously, a Vatican bioethics advisory panel had made a statement on the need to accept the limits of what medicine can do.
