Mother sues Tavistock child gender clinic over treatments Empty Mother sues Tavistock child gender clinic over treatments

England’s first NHS child gender clinic is being threatened with legal action over its use of “experimental” treatments for children as young as 11.

The case, being brought by the mother of a patient aged 15 and a nurse who worked at the service, argues that hormone-blocking treatments are being unlawfully administered to children who cannot properly consent.

The pair are asking judges to ban the clinic from giving the treatment to children unless a court decides that it is in their best interests. They have accused the Tavistock and Portman NHS trust, which runs the gender identity development service (Gids) in north London, of misleading families about the nature of the treatment.
