Trans Group Forces Children’s Clinic Into Hormone Therapy for Under-12s


by Jake Welch, The National Pulse:

Mermaids, a UK-based trans lobby group, assisted the country’s National Health Service (NHS) in drafting medical guidance which permitted “any children under 12” to be administered hormone blockers.

Susie Green, the chairman of Mermaids, participated in a task force that reviewed services at the Tavistock Clinic, with new guidance subsequently issued, stating: “hormone blockers will now be considered for any children under the age of 12 if they are in established puberty”.


Despite having no formal medical expertise or training, Ms. Green had a direct line to Dr. Polly Carmichael, the director of the Tavistock Clinic, which she leveraged in order to “be regarded as a professional so she could refer children for treatment when their GPs refused.”

Ms. Green sent a number of referrals to the clinic for children “unsupported by their GP.” In one instance, she referred children noting that the general practitioner/family doctor “has consistently refused to refer.”

“The Tavistock were really in thrall to these activists. They were ideologically captured,”said Stephanie Davies-Ari, founder of the Transgender Trend. Green now works for Gender GP, an online service providing cross sex-hormones.

The Tavistock Clinic initially refused to release details of the task force’s meetings, telling the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) the clinic did not have the information. When threatened with a court case, 322 pages were suddenly found, and released.
