Sky News published this video item, entitled “NHS Foundation Trust wins bid to overturn landmark ruling on puberty-blocking drugs” – below is their description.

It is up to doctors to decide if someone aged under 16 can be prescribed puberty blockers without parental consent, the Court of Appeal has ruled.

The court said last year that people aged under 16 would have “enormous difficulties” understanding what the treatment’s long term effects would be – and therefore could not consent to the treatment.
