Bell and Mrs A versus The Tavistock, December 2020.

A travesty for trans youth in the UK.

December’s ruling against the Tavistock, which made access to puberty blockers for trans youth even more of a challenge, has left parents of trans youth terrified.


People have been left asking one simple question: How can it be that, based on the evidence presented to them, the judge was not convinced that the UK’s national healthcare provider was able to provide safe care?


At GenderGP we not only provide healthcare to the trans community – people of all ages, wherever they are in the world – we a firm advocates, committed to mending a broken system.


As part of our advocacy remit we have analysed the case, what went wrong and what the outcome is for this group of people who have had the rug pulled from under them.
