    *being done*

    Hi!

    Is this sentence correct?

    "It depends on what (kind of) treatment is being done?"

    Thank you in advance for your time and effort!

    I'd use "carried out" rather than "done" in that sentence.

    The sentence is understandable as is. It's not unnatural to me.

    I don't think it sounds entirely unnatural. The only thing is we don't really say "to do treatment". We use "to treat" or to "provide treatment". Consequently, I wouldn't head for "treatment being done".
