A woman who was treated with hormone blockers to reassign her gender as a teenager is taking the NHS to court, saying she “should have been told to wait”.
She said the care she received for gender dysphoria, a condition where a person experiences distress due to a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity, steered her towards medical treatment.
The Gender Identity Development Service at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust said they provide a “thoughtful and measured service for children, young people and their families” who come to them in “considerable distress”.
