Temporary Ban on Puberty Suppressing Hormones

As organisations who provide support to our LGBTQ+ community, we are disappointed at the introduction of emergency legislation to ban the prescription of puberty suppressing hormones (also known as GnRH analogues) in England, Wales and Scotland.

We are reviewing the legislation with experts to understand the implications and will provide factual information for those affected once we have it. A letter has been sent by NHS England to all those on the waiting list for the new under 18s service, which provides further detail on the impact of this legislation, which you can read here

From an initial read there are aspects of this legislation, such as age and identity verification, that may also have consequences for those accessing private care including trans adults and people living with endometriosis, fibroids and testicular cancer, as well as profound impacts on trans young people.
