This consultation is to seek views on a proposed interim clinical policy on puberty suppressing hormones (sometimes referred to as 'puberty blockers' or 'hormone blockers') for children and adolescents who have early onset gender incongruence or dysphoria. The policy proposition is that puberty suppressing hormones are not recommended to be available as a routine commissioning option.
Consultation documents can be found here.
The consultation period ends on 1 November 2023
