Good to see that individual members of the public overwhelmingly share our concerns about current trends in #NHS Gender Identity Services. engage.england.nhs.uk/survey/gender-…
Also good to see that the public is aware of the number of teenage girls with Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria #ROGD and the cultural pressure on young lesbians and gays to ID as trans. And the call for #NHS to publicise organisations with a more critical perspective.
