The National Health Service (NHS) in England has taken a cautious step back from administering puberty-blocking drugs to children, citing the need for more evidence on their benefits and potential harms. This decision comes amidst concerns over the lack of conclusive outcomes from such treatments and follows a legal discourse on whether children under 16 can give informed consent for medical treatment. This move by the NHS not only highlights the importance of data-driven medical practices but also raises concerns over the future of transgender care in England and potentially sets a precedent for medical institutions worldwide.

Do you agree with the NHS's decision to require more evidence before routinely offering puberty-blocking drugs to children?
