I've had a copy of My PCT policy on "gender dysphoria services" and if I was in any doubt about the institutional transphobia of the NHS then the document confirms it!
If I had the patience I'd rip it apart in detail as it demonstrates that the charlatan psychiatrists that control NHS policy don't actually remotely understand the condition.
Anyway that ridicule is for another day & blog entry LOL
This is my response to it in so that the legal battle is now defined!

Dear Mr XXX,
I am now in receipt of a copy of the Commissioning Policy & Referral Guidelines for Gender Dysphoria Services that has been sent to me via my GP Dr YYY.
I do not accept that these guidelines are applicable to me as I am legally female.
This is proof absolute that I have archived the result implicit in your guidelines of successfully living in a female role.
I therefore expect my request for funding to be considered by the Individual Treatment Panel.
I look forward to your response,
Maggie Fiona Fox
