Good to see that individual members of the public overwhelmingly share our concerns about current trends in #NHS Gender Identity Services.…
Also good to see that the public is aware of the number of teenage girls with Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria #ROGD and the cultural pressure on young lesbians and gays to ID as trans. And the call for #NHS to publicise organisations with a more critical perspective.
Well done to everyone who pointed out that current #NHS professional training is provided by lobby groups such as GIRES who have no qualifications, and that training should obviously be provided by clinical professionals.
Thanks to the British Psychological Society for emphasising the need for psychosocial and psychotherapeutic intervention in the gender care pathway.
Excellent points raised by individuals and families of young people suffering gender dysphoria.
Reasons given for opposing the move to adult services for 17 year-olds:
We hope that the #NHS will take these concerns seriously; all GIDS clinicians and therapists need to have an awareness of the specific pressures on adolescent girls and their susceptibility to social contagion.
Caution is especially needed because of the lack of research and evidence base for this medical pathway for young people. This is an experiment. #NHS cannot leave this up to lobby groups.
And finally, @NHSEngland, what is a "cis-gendered female"?
