In 2020, the London High Court ruled that under 16s can’t consent. The Keira Bell case, a case of regret, was brought against the solitary clinic. The clinic lost and a study was commissioned to be run by pediatrician Hilary Cass resulting in “the Cass Report” to give some further backing for the 2020 decision.

The Cass Report shied away from being direct, giving an appearance of both-sides regarding treatment but it was to issue enough doubt to support a “lack of long term data” — despite the clinic running for 30 years with plenty of data both there and in other studies.
That the end result of ZERO support for under 16s possible except in scientific studies says “political” because even in the Cass Report, it did indicate benefit which speaks to a need to continue SOME services in that way even if limited. But “scientific-studies only” is very very strict.
