Robin White has contributed to the Farrer & Co podcast entitled ‘Safeguarding transgender children’, which was released on Monday 7th September.
In this two-part podcast, trans rights experts Robin White and Dr Bianca Jackson discuss the key issues with Katie Fudakowski and Sophia Coles of Farrer & Co’s Safeguarding Unit, offering clear and practical guidance on the law, best practice and how to effectively safeguard children affected by this topic.
One of the areas covered in our conversation is the widely reported case of Bell v Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust  as well as the less widely reported but related case, AB v CD & others . Both cases consider the issue of consent in the context of the administration of Puberty Blockers to under 16s. We have set out a short briefing on these two important cases below. The appeal of the Bell v Tavistock decision was heard in June this year and we are still waiting for the appeal court’s judgment.
