An English 14-year-old trans boy, Reece (who has not disclosed his full name), is beginning legal proceedings against the NHS after delays to transitional treatment.

According to the BBC, Reece came out as transgender in primary school and was supported by those around him, but had to wait over a year for a referral to the only NHS gender clinic for young people.

He was able to receive gender-affirming healthcare through private services, but found many other trans people are facing long waiting times for treatment.
