Re the Service Specification ‘NHS England E13/S(HSS)/e’ which is extremely misleading to professionals, patients and the public.
Concerns that doctors are being advised against what is expected of them as a UK registered GP and that it is they who are responsible for their own professional skills, knowledge and practice. Even more so when we consider that these patients may be at higher than average risk of suicide and self-harm with the welfare and lives of children and vulnerable adults at stake.
A letter to the Government Equalities Office about the transphobia and lack of professional duty shown by the General Medical Council following on from the Transgender Equality Inquiry, the findings of which were published in 2016.
A letter to express our very grave concerns regarding the current healthcare provision afforded to young transgender people in the UK. We believe that the current situation is causing untold harm and, in some cases, even death and poses a significant risk to the NHS in the future, in terms of litigation and requests for compensation.
Fighting for fairer research to help prevent personal views and cherry-picking hampering the care of transgender youth.
Requests to meet with the GMC to discuss the safety of trans patients in the UK repeatedly refused.
