Headline

GPs should initiate gender dysphoria hormones in 'exceptional circumstances'

Comment

He said: 'We would expect GPs to acquire the knowledge and skills to be able to deliver a good service to their patient population... Having said that, we don't believe that providing care for patients with gender dysphoria is a highly specialist treatment area requiring specific expertise.' Mmmm , logically and potentially this can apply to virtually all other 'specialist' therapy . The happiest organisation is our medical indemnity agencies with all reasons to ramp up the fees higher and higher. And to the patients , really safe enough , seriously ?
