Justice minister praises new gender report

  • last month
Justice Minister Laura Farris has praised a new report by paediatrician Dr Hilary Cass, which calls for gender services for young people to match the standards of other NHS care. The Cass Review was commissioned by NHS England in 2020 after a rise in the number of patients referred to the NHS who expressed interest in changing their gender. "Dr Cass has done amazing work identifying and highlighting the voices of the doctors in the area who said they felt under intense pressure to adopt an unquestioning affirmative attitude to any teenager who would come to them," Ms Farris said.
