My 14 year old child (natal DD) was referred to the GIDS Tavistock clinic last year and we are waiting for an appointment. He is currently receiving support (counselling) via CAMHS. Today he said that as soon as he gets to the Tavistock they'll put him on hormone blockers - irrespective of whether his parents agree with this treatment. Does anyone know if this is right ? I assumed the Tavistock were slightly more cautious and would do some counselling before handing out any medication. OR is the counselling presumed to have been done by CAMHS.
