Governor of Tavistock resigns


"The trust running the country’s only NHS gender identity service for children is under fire for dismissing a damning internal report that branded it `not fit for purpose`."

"Marcus Evans, one of the governors of The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust has resigned, after accusing its management of having an `overvalued belief in` the expertise of its Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) `which is used to dismiss challenge and examination`."

"Evans’s decision to part company with the London-based trust, after a 35-year association, will intensify scrutiny of the service which has found itself in the eye of a storm as thousands of young people considering transitioning to another gender seek its help."

"Some parents who contacted the Observer have accused the service of `fast-tracking` young people into changing gender, a charge strongly rejected by the service."
