THREAD: Since my recent tweets about GenderGP I've had several clinicians contact me with grave concerns around horrendous safeguarding failures with GenderGP's operation. I'm going to recount one here today. Others will follow. 1/5
Case one concerns a girl, aged 15, with a long history of repeated suicide attempts, some requiring hospitalisation. She identified as trans though her neither parents nor her clinician agreed, seeing instead a profoundly traumatised child. 2/5
This child, aged, 15, travelled to GenderGP in Wales. Without any consultation with CAMHS or GIDS ot he child's parents, GenderGP prescribed testosterone the same day. The child is now a young woman aged 18, identifying as a transman. 3/5
Despite GIDS/GIC taking over prescribing, despite the breast removal, despite being rehoused by the local authority to escape 'transphobic' parents, the self harm and suicide attempts continue. 4/5
To recap, GenderGP prescribed testosterone to a 15 year old girl with a long history of suicide attempts, after a single appointment, without any reference to her parents or to local mental health services.

Why are the directors of GenderGP not facing prosecution for this? 5/5

THREAD: Still more digging into GenderGP's setup, and it just gets sleazier. To try and get to the bottom of what is happening in Belize, I hired a freelancer to look at a few things for me. This freelancer proved to be useful - it seems everyone knows everyone in Belize! 1/7
They took a look at 3301 Chetumal Street, GenderGP's 'office' in Belize City and registered office of Roton Executors, owners of Harland International and therefore GenderGP. Number 3301 doesn't exist. This place does though... 2/7
This is 3331 Chetumal Street. Just like 3301, it is home to hundreds and hundreds of limited companies. It is owned by Doug Singh, a local politician and businessman. Note the banner on the building for Zitro International. 3/7

Still more murkiness with GenderGP. When the parent company, Harland International, was set up in Hong Kong, it was incorporated with 1 HK dollar of capital. The director, Genevieve Pennill then transferred that share to another company, Roton Executors. 1/5
Roton Executors are based in Belize City, at 3301 Chetumal Street. This also happens to be the office of Spectrum Support Services Ltd, registered in Belize. This is also the contact address for Gender GP, and is listed as such on their website. 2/5
Spectrum Support Services Ltd is also listed as a director of Asaar Technology Limited, a company incorporated in 2018 with a registered address in Abergavenny. Mike Webberley is listed as a director, with Helen Webberley listed as a person with significant control. 3/5

THREAD - some more digging into who owns GenderGP. Helen Webberley relinquished control of GenderGP Ltd on 5 April 2019. At the time she stated that she owned more than 75% of the company. At the same time something interesting happened. 1/7
Although the company nominated Lidia Palmero as director, it also nominated Genevieve Yolanda Pennill as someone with significant control of the company, specifically as someone who "has significant influence or control over the trustees of a trust". 2/7
The same arrangement exists for Online GP Services Ltd, with Helen relinquishing control on 5 April 2019 and Genevieve nominated as some with "significant influence or control over the trustees of a trust". Does this company provide the GP services for GenderGP? 3/7

Who owns GenderGP, the online transgender affirmative care provider and prescriber of pubery blockers and cross-sex hormones to children and young people in the United Kingdom. This has become a highly pertinent question as doubtless many parents will be seeking their services. 1
GenderGP was founded by Dr Helen Webberley, a GP who was suspended by the GMC in 2018 for running an unlicensed clinic that gave hormones to children as young as 12. Helen moved her clinic to Malaga with her husband Dr Mike Webberley, who was also suspended by the GMC. 2
After this, things get murky. GenderGP claim that their business was acquired by Harland International, which claims to be "a global organisation providing advocacy services for LGBTQI people globally" and is incorporated in Hong Kong. 3

One telling events from last night’s #LGBAlliance webinar points to an issue that gay men rarely discuss, but very much need to. I suspect in some small part it has fuelled the current erasure of homosexuality. 1/5
Simon Fanshawe asked the panel about the most gender non-conforming things they’ve ever done. Speaking to Malcolm he said “you’re quite butch, aren’t you?” In what I saw as a rather admiring way. And Malcolm is quite butch and that is a fine thing. 2/5
Moving on to Lachlan I detected a slight hesitance in Simon about how to say the bridge, I suspect because Lachlan is quite camp. Which is also a fine thing. But do we, as gay men, really value all presentations equally? 3/5
