New Government restrictions on use of Puberty Suppressing Hormones (Puberty Blockers)

The Government has introduced emergency restrictions on the use of gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogues used to suppress puberty as part of treating gender incongruence or gender dysphoria in children and young people who are under 18 years of age. Some of these restrictions, the ones for private prescriptions, will take effect from 3 June 2024.
