 Doctors wearing surgical masks and gowns performing an operation on patient in hospital operating theater.

Keira Bell, now 23, is a plaintiff in a case against the Tavistock and Portman National Health Service Trust, which uses chemicals and physical surgeries to ‘transition’ children,

She told BBC News there were no brakes on the process, which began at age 14.

Her comments support the argument of opponents that children are not capable of making such life-altering decisions.

At Tavistock, at age 16, she had only three hours of assessment before she was given chemicals to block puberty.

Bell said that after she was given puberty blockers, she was treated with the male hormone testosterone.

She said the adults in the room during her treatment allowed her to ‘run with this idea that I had, almost like a fantasy, as a teenager …

Even some staff members at the gender clinic have raised concerns that puberty blockers are being handed out without enough counseling or medical assessment work.

And that’s the point of this case, when you are that young you don’t really want to listen,’ Bell said.

‘So I think it’s up to these institutions, like the Tavistock, to step in and make children reconsider what they are saying, because it is a life-altering path.’

A physician with the clinic claimed it has a thorough assessment process.

‘We’re talking about identity here, their identity, and a feeling that their gender identity does not match that body,’ the doctor told the BBC.
