    the drugs or treatment serve the
    patient’s needs.
    b provide effective treatments based on
    the best available evidence
    f check that the care or treatment you

    Obviously this is not being carried out in this case.

    Yeah, its not that clear.  Gender GP are private providers and many parents have turned to this source of support for their children.  I think that the GMC is right, but there also needs to be more guidance for private practices in the UK, as there are a lot of desperate parents out there who can get frustrated by the wait.  There is definitely room for a private provision, but I think that there are also a lot of unscrupulous people who will exploit this.  As you say, the reports are a bit confusing.  I also found the comments very negative, again without too much outside of a news article.

  • The reports are confusing, If I had an impacted wisdom tooth I would'nt go to see a hairdresser who sometimes did pedicures.    The GMC is quite clear and there are procedures laid out in Health guidelines and in the GRA, that GP's should refer these patients to a Gender Clinic, GP's should certainly not prescribe hormone treatments unless instructed to do so by the Clinic after exhaustive consultations.   The long term effects of HRT can be irreversible and damaging especially if the patient also has a genetic condition, this is why Clinics do blood tests and in some cases full genetic DNA scrutiny.   The thought of children being giving hormone therapy without close supervision is dangerous to say the least.

    Is it me or are they targeting anybody outside the NHS who handles trans kids?  Also, some of the GMC charges are that he is unqualified in the field.  Looking at his credentials he seems to have enough to satisfy.  Even so.  How do you become qualified in this field?  If having 1600 patients doesn't make you an expert, what does?

    This is another posting of the article:

    I find the responses interesting.  Is it me or are there a few negative mums getting on the band wagon?  I mean, what mother would join a forum with the tag "Sexnotgender"?  I get the feeling that a load of trolls have just signed up dummy accounts just to rant.

     

    Depressing.
