The new transgender treatment regulations, seen by The Telegraph, will expand access to operations such as mastectomies, breast implants, genital reassignment, and hormone therapy.

The report calls for the elimination of “barriers” to gender reassignment surgery, which can “benefit” trans patients.

One of the proposed measures is to allow primary care physicians to refer patients for procedures instead of specialists and to make a “single opinion” sufficient in most cases to refer for surgery.One of the proposed measures is to allow GPs to send patients for procedures instead of specialists and to make a 'single opinion' enough to refer for surgery in most cases.

According to the NHS Scotland report, a thorough examination of a patient’s history or mental health is not required prior to referral.

In order to get gender-affirming healthcare, individuals should not be required to describe their childhood, sexuality, or current gender identity and gender expression in stereotypical terms.

Access to hormones and surgical procedures can serve as preventative measures against distress.

A transgender person can have persistent gender incongruence without experiencing distress and can still benefit from hormone therapy or surgery.

NHS Scotland has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

The rules adhere to approaches advocated by the United States-based World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).

The organization contends that it is unethical for medical professionals to prevent children from receiving the treatment if they wish to prevent the wrong sex from developing.

It believes that the age at which children can receive such treatment should be lowered to 14.

The prominent pro-trans advocacy organization also asserts that eunuch is a valid gender identity.

One of the proposed approaches is to allow primary care physicians to refer patients for procedures instead of specialists and to make a “single opinion” sufficient in most circumstances to refer for surgery. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is shown.

It comes after Scotland’s top court was informed that it is ‘incorrect’ to assert that human sex is determined at birth and cannot be legally altered.

The government of Nicola Sturgeon has urged Lady Haldane to dismiss a case launched by feminist activists For Women Scotland (FWS), claiming that it is’very obvious’ that UK law permits a man to transition into a woman.

Feminist campaigners have taken ministers to the Court of Session to dispute plans to expand the legal definition of women to include transgender individuals having a female gender recognition certificate (GRC).

Controversially, the SNP seeks to modify the law in Scotland to make it simpler for anyone to obtain a GRC.

FWS contends that the measure, which the government expects will increase the number of transgender individuals on Scottish public boards, violates the Equality Act.

Ruth Crawford, KC, for the Government, stated that a person born male could be legally considered a woman and’share’ their legal privileges under the Gender Recognition Act of 2004.

After only TWO HOURS of counseling, a 26-year-old woman who underwent double mastectomy and hormone therapy to transition to male expresses regret for her decision.

Sam, now 26 years old, decided to pay for private treatment sessions when she began questioning her gender identity at age 21 and was informed she would have to wait two and a half years for an NHS appointment.

After self-diagnosing herself as a trans man based on online research, she was given permission to begin hormone therapy and undergo a double mastectomy after only two one-hour doctor consultations.

Two years after beginning hormone therapy and undergoing a double mastectomy, she developed health difficulties and decided against undergoing full gender reassignment surgery.

By the time she received her initial NHS visit, she realized she had made a mistake and informed the doctors that she was now seeking assistance to transition back to a woman.

Sam is now stepping out in an effort to assist those suffering with gender identity, and to warn them of the dangers of undergoing the transition too rapidly without adequate therapy care.

Sam from the Midwest stated, “I am currently reconnecting with my natural body in its current form, and my life is about moving forward.”

‘My trip has left me with permanent effects, but they do not discredit me as a woman.

Sam, 26, from the Midlands (shown after detransitioning) decided to pay for private therapy sessions at the age of 21 after being informed she would have to wait 2.5 years for an NHS appointment.

Sam (shown after her mastectomy) is now warning people of the dangers of undergoing gender transition without enough psychological assistance and too rapidly.

“I still feel sorrow for the medical steps I took during my transition, but I am focusing on embracing and accepting my body as it is rather than as it was and as I wish it were.”

I do feel that counseling should be incorporated at all levels of the transitioning process in order to assist in identifying and exploring red flags that may emerge during the transformative path of an individual.

I also believe that individuals should be provided more information to ensure that their informed consent is really informed.

“It has been a very difficult path for me, and I have lost many people along the way who felt that I am anti-trans in some way.”

“I saw a community filled with so many people who had transitioned, and it had ultimately made them happy. In hindsight, I assumed it would be what made me happy as well.”

I didn’t have enough therapy to investigate what was actually going on with me and help me realize that I don’t need to conform to one of society’s gender conventions.

‘Having gone through the process and regretted my decision, I believe I am in a good position to offer a different viewpoint on what should be done differently to assist those who are doubting their identity.

Because of suicide numbers, the business is under intense pressure from the trans community to move things ahead rapidly. This terrified me to the point where I felt I had to do everything possible to prevent feeling this way.
