Why do GPs have to prescribe for gender dysphoria?


I am saddened that pulse uses a piece from Dr Webberly pretending to be from a fellow GP. She has provided a private, online prescribing service for many years for people with transgender problems. This is clearly not core General Practice. She has retired from General Practice and seems to be in the process of setting up a specialist service for people with transgender problems. Again this is not core General Practice. I am unable to tell if it is an NHS service that is intended or a private one taking NHS contracts. Perhaps she would care to enlighten us. Most of what she says about the core values of General Practice are perfectly reasonable,apart from 'This is set to become part of routine general practice, with GPs supporting the rising numbers of people seeking help.' I would disagree, unless adequate resources are provided.
