Findings that children’s gender care in the NHS has been based on weak evidence have been described as “scandalous” by the shadow health secretary who said he was angry that adult gender clinics had refused to take part in research. Wes Streeting called The Cass Review, which said children have been let down by a lack of research and evidence on the use of puberty blockers and hormones, an important piece of work which had raised serious concerns. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has said the findings “shine a spotlight” on the need to “exercise extreme caution” when it comes to gender care for children.
