Why did the NHS let me change sex? Star witness in court battle against clinic that fast-tracked her gender change aged 16 reveals what happened when she made a cry for help

She says she has been contacted by 'hundreds of young adults' — some only 19 or 20 — who claim the treatment has not solved their problems.

Yet, demand for gender identity treatment is growing. More than 13,500 people are on waiting lists, according to BBC research earlier this month.

The Government has also launched an inquiry into the explosion in the number of children wanting to change sex.

In 2009/10, 40 girls under 18 were referred to doctors for gender treatment in England.

By 2017/18, the number had soared to 1,806. Over the same period, annual referrals for boys increased from 57 to 713.
