Gender Recognition

(asked on 20th July 2020) - View Source

Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bethell on 17 July (HL5874), what information they hold on (1) the number of children who have been given GnHR, or any other gender re-assignment treatment, by the NHS, (2) the amount of compensation paid to patients who received such treatments but who were subsequently deemed to have been mis-diagnosed, and (3) the number of compensation claims made following such treatments.

The National Health Service currently offers the following medical treatments to under 18-year olds on gender dysphoria pathways: hormone blockers, cross sex hormones and psychological assessment. The service does not offer surgery to under 18-year olds.

Information on the number of children who have been prescribed GnHR is not available centrally, as information on prescribing drugs is collected locally. Further, the drugs used in gender identity pathways are not exclusively prescribed for such, meaning records do not reflect total patient numbers on these pathways.


Information on number of treatments and misdiagnosis is not available in the format requested.
