NHS Tavistock child gender clinic rated ‘inadequate’

The NHS’s child gender-identity service has been rated “inadequate” after inspectors identified “significant concerns”.

The Care Quality Commission inspected the Gender Identity Development Service (Gids) at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in October.

More than 4,600 young people were on the waiting list and some had waited over two years for a first appointment.

The trust said it took the CQC report “very seriously”.
