Off to read the article but I really hope this means the start of proper care for young people with gender dysphoria

Just seen. Wow what a week. The report sounds like it will be really damning.

Crucially, it also looks like the replacement services will have stronger mental health support.

Oh that’s actually made me cry. Proper holistic care, mental health support and rigorous data collection

This is great news. It will be crucial that the NHS follows through with providing the mental health support that's needed by kids and teenagers.

And clinical trials to follow up children on puberty blockers into adulthood.

Thank you Keira

It’s important to say I don’t celebrate a clinic closing because I don’t want the service to be available, but because I want a great and safe service to be available: the Tavistock was not providing this. I really want good services available for children and hope they come soon.

well done Dr Cass!

Amazing news. Hopefully ‘doctors’ will stop butchering children now

Brilliant. Children’s lives will be saved by closing this experimental factory of horror.

The Cass findings must be absolutely damning for it to shut completely.

I fear the NHS will lose a lot of money in future legal claims because of the Tavistock

This is a start. There isn’t the evidence to say puberty blockers are an appropriate treatment for gender dysphoria, so whether they’re doling them out here or at a number of other clinics, the underlying assumptions (that there are some children who ‘are trans’) need serious attention.

Having a huge emotional response. I have a ND gender non conforming daughter (read everything non conforming).

She is young, but not far off being exposed to these ideas. She is fodder for gender ideologues. Struggles socially. Likes 'boy stuff'. Beginning to realise she is different. Absolutist. If she headed down the gender questioning path the Tavi would have been where she was referred. That prospect genuinely terrifies me.

The closure of that facility makes me so much less fearful of this prospect.

I am so fucking relieved.
