GPs should initiate gender dysphoria hormones in 'exceptional circumstances'


"we don't believe that providing care for patients with gender dysphoria is a highly specialist treatment area requiring specific expertise."

Whereas you seem to be advising that a GP should just print out a prescription in a 10 minute consultation.
