Abstract: There are complex ethical and legal issues for children who are non-conforming to their assigned gender. The main role of the general practitioner is providing support and referral to a specialist centre, usually the Tavistock and Portman Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) in London, for ongoing psychological assessment. This needs to be done urgently if there are concerns over self-harm or su icide; or the child is at or close to age of puberty. At the age of 17, the adolescent can be referred to an adult specialist service.
