A doctor offering an online clinic for transgender patients has won a High Court appeal after she was suspended from working.

Dr. Helen Webberley, who worked as a GP in south Wales, will be allowed to work again after the court ordered the General Medical Council to end their six-year case against the founder of GenderGP, an online service which provided gender affirming healthcare services to the transgender community.
