A woman who had testosterone injections and a mastectomy at the Scottish equivalent of the Tavistock clinic before “detransitioning” back has said its children’s service should be closed.
Sinead Watson, now 31, was treated after self-referral to the Sandyford Clinic in Glasgow when she was 24.
She later realized that transitioning had not helped her depression, anxiety and self-harm. She wants Sandyford Youth Gender Servicefor those under 18, to close following the fate of the gender identity development service at Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in London, which is closing next year.
That was told by Watson from Glasgow The times: “I went to Sandyford as a 24-year-old woman with a long history of depression, anxiety, self-harm, alcohol abuse and suicidal thoughts.
