    In other words, all the things that Dr Reid got into trouble for doing. I think the BMA owes him an apology!

    1. Far, far more than an apology. But his peers that pressed the complaints are still at work, trying to ensure their ideas determine a treatment protocol for England based on their holding all power, and quite different to this Scottish one. Not that this one is totally free of their influence, or perfect. Some parts are a mess, and the effect of the young persons’ section is that there is no change.

  2. I think is good for trans people in Scotland – as long as it works in practice. My own experience of the NHS (mental health services) in Scotland is that they don’t meet their own targets and commitments to patients. Let’s hope these new protocols and rules don’t let trans people down.

    1. bogged down in impersonal red tape, no doubt…

  3. Still no mention of FFS though, and that’s what makes living a ‘normal’ life possible in many/most circumstances.

    Any barely-competent GP could provide hormones. All the gender clinic frippery is about management and discouraging of trans identities
