LONDON (Christian Concern) — The number of children being given medical treatment for ‘gender confusion’ has risen 1,000 percent over the past five years.
The NHS’s Gender Identity Disorder Service treated 1,013 children, between April and December last year, a freedom of information request by The Sun revealed.
In 2010, just 97 cases were recorded.
The Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, based in London, is the only clinic in the UK that provides such treatment. But as demand for the treatment increases the Trust may seek to offer treatment in their Leeds, Brighton and Exeter clinics.
