NHS psychologist claims poor and abused children are wrongly being labelled transgender

A former NHS psychologist has broken cover to claim that children are being misdiagnosed as transgender cases – with sex-abuse victims and young people living in extreme poverty among them.

Dr Kirsty Entwistle is the first whistleblower to go public and be named over her concerns regarding the treatment of children by NHS gender clinics.

She said ‘traumatic early experiences’ that might explain a misguided desire to swap sex are not being investigated by medical staff who fear being labelled transphobic.

Other vulnerable children being referred to Britain’s only NHS gender clinic for under-18s include those with mental health problems, she claims.

Dr Entwistle is one of a growing number of staff from the child Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) to criticise the clinic’s practices.

However, she is the first to put her name to concerns and has written an open letter to the head of GIDS.

She is now calling for an independent investigation into potential failures that she and other employees have exposed.
