Rook Irwin Sweeney instructed in the Court of Appeal in case relating to the treatment of Transgender Children and Young People

Rook Irwin Sweeney LLP is instructed by a coalition of national and international organisations which have been granted permission to intervene in the Court of Appeal in a case relating to the treatment of transgender children and young people.

The Court of Appeal granted the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust permission to appeal in the case of R (Bell) v Tavistock [2020] EWCA 3274 (Admin) in January 2021. The case concerns the ability of children and young people under 18 with diagnoses of gender dysphoria to consent to treatment with puberty blockers.

We have been instructed by the national trans-led charity Gendered Intelligence; Brook, the UK’s leading sexual health and wellbeing charity for young people; and the Endocrine Society, a global community of endocrine scientists and clinicians. The appeal is due to be heard in May, June or July 2021.
