73 Three and Four-Year Olds, Hundreds of Children Under Six Sent to Disgraced NHS Transgender Clinic:
Children as young as three years old have been referred to Britain’s socialised medicine’s ‘Gender Identity Development Service’ transgender clinic, with hundreds of young children referred in the past decade.
382 children aged six and under have been referred to the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) in the Tavistock and Portman Trust, known commonly as the National Health Service’s transgender clinic, in the past ten years new figures from the Trust reveal. The numbers, published by the Daily Mail, reveal how even the youngest children have been pushed into interacting with the controversial clinic, and that the numbers being referred to GIDS have soared in recent years.
The clinic, which has no official younger age limit to those it will see, has had 12 three-year-olds referred to it between 2010 and 2020, as well as 61 four-year-olds, 140 five-year-olds, and 169 six-year-olds. The number of young people being sent to GIDS year-on-year shows how quickly the concept is spreading, with 136 referrals in 2010-11 to 3,585 a decade later.
It has been previously reported that the clinic “treated” some 19,000 children of all ages in 25 years.

The Daily Mail report also cited the Tavistock Clinic’s own attempt to defend the figures, insisting that while it accepted referrals for three-year-olds, it didn’t actually perform what they euphemistically call “treatment” on the infants. Instead, it was said, “staff normally [hold] a ‘one-off discussion’ with parents or carers to provide support and advice.” --->READ MORE HERE
Dozens of under-5s have been referred to the controversial NHS transgender service as officials consider introducing a minimum age for referrals:
Over 70 children have been sent to the Gender Identity Development Service
More than 70 children aged three and four have been sent to the controversial NHS transgender clinic, it can be revealed.
The pre-schoolers were among 382 youngsters aged six and under referred to the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) over the past decade, official figures show.
Campaigners say they never should have been put forward by doctors or parents for psychological assessment at such a young age.
Health Service bosses are now considering introducing a minimum age of seven for future patients on the grounds that younger children are unable to communicate meaningfully with medics about wanting to identify as the opposite sex.
A new consultation by NHS England also acknowledges that little boys showing an interest in girls' clothes or toys, or vice versa, is 'reasonably common' and 'usually not indicative of gender incongruence'.
It comes ahead of a long-awaited final report by consultant pediatrician Dr Hilary Cass, which is expected to make further far-reaching recommendations about transgender services for young people after her interim study led to GIDS being ordered to shut down.
The Government is also trying to stop the spread of contentious gender identity ideology in schools, with equalities minister Kemi Badenoch declaring that teaching children they can be born in the wrong body is harmful.
The GIDS clinic, run by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in north London since 1989, had no lower age limit on referrals – but not all were accepted or led to treatment being provided.
Statistics produced by the trust show the astonishing growth in numbers of young people seen there over the past decade, from 136 in 2010-11 to 3,585 in 2021-22.
Further details show that 12 three-year-olds were referred to the clinic over that period, along with 61 four-year-olds, 140 five-year-olds and 169 six-year-olds.
The NHS trust that runs GIDS stressed no three-year-olds would have received 'treatment', with staff normally holding a 'one-off discussion' with parents or carers to provide support and advice.
But former health minister Jackie Doyle-Price hit out at the clinic last night, saying: 'They should never have been seeing three-year-olds. --->READ MORE HERE
