I am appalled that Standard of Care and Duty of Care are not being observed.
Standard of care states
1. 12 week assessment before hormone therapy
2. 5 blood tests required. Liver/Kidney functions—Prolactin blood levels---Testosterone/Oestrogen levels.
3. Assessment by a Psychiatrist.
4. Hormones/Drugs administered by an Endocrinologist
None of these above are being adhered to as far as I am aware.
GP is assessing whether you are Transsexual by viewing even if dressed as Male. If considered to be TS the GP then starts the Hormone/Drug regime.
Usually this seems to consist of an Oral Contraceptive Pill—Microgynon 50/50
Oestrogen/Progestogen—Why not Premarin which is 100% Oestrogen, the feminiser. Androcur, which can only be authorised after the OP, is being given to those who have not had the Op by calling them "sexual deviants"
Some girls are on Provera, which is Progestogen only. This does not feminise, as it is directed at the Female reproductive system. As we never have and never will have that, what is the use?
Not only Standard of Care, but Duty of Care are at stake here. It appears that Drugs/Hormones are being handed out willy nilly without Due Care on the person giving them out, or not understanding their application, and this is not supposed to happen. This surely is for An Endocrinologist, not a GP.
With the current trend to litigation, what would happen if the above Standards were found to be lacking, who would have to pay compensation if it came to that? Would it be one or all involved in the lack of application of Standards of Care and Duty
What steps can be taken to stop this serious breach of the SOC, before too much more damage is done? Our suicide rate is high enough now!
