Oct 25, 2022 | Political News

The National Health Service (NHS) of England has warned that the majority of children who believe themselves to be transgender are just going through a phase and has advised doctors not to encourage them to change their names and pronouns, reports The Daily Telegraph.

This warning was included in the Interim Service Specification published on Oct 20, which also outlined plans for NHS England to restrict access to puberty blockers to only the strictest of clinical trial settings given the lack of evidence to support their use.
