GPs should initiate gender dysphoria hormones in 'exceptional circumstances'


Dear All, Err but "The patient is already self-prescribing with hormones obtained from an unregulated source (over the internet or otherwise on black market);" If the source is unregulated and its self prescribing how can anyone be certain they are actually receiving bio active compounds? More likely the 90% talc Viagra discovered above a north london shop years back. if there is no certainty that the patient is actually on a hormone treatment then the GP would in effect be initiating treatment....... I think Mr Dickson should re-consult his advisers on this aspect. Regards Paul C
