Transgender identity shouldn’t be classed as mental disorder say researchers


CAMHS and eating disorders. There is a problematic area. Should we GPs pick up all the work that should be done by specialists because the NHS fails to provide sufficient levels of clinical care? My view is that we should not. In the same way that patients suffer because their hernia surgery is delayed patients suffer because their psychotherapy is delayed. I do not provide hernia surgery or psychotherapy. (I actually have qualifications in both of the above but that is not what a GP provides)
