Gender GP doctor faces fines for not registering her clinic


Dr Helen Webberley, the doctor behind private transgender clinic Gender GP, has been fined £12,000 for trying to help those trans people who have to wait for the state-supplied gender treatment for many years. But the doctor haven’t registered with Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW) during Gender GP’s period of operation between March 2017 and February 2018, which means that the clinic worked illegally for almost a year. At a December 3 hearing at Merthyr Tydfil Magistrates Court, Webberley was handed a fine of £12,000, while Gender GP was fined an additional £2,000. Webberley was also told to pay £11,307 costs. She admitted her guilt of not registering her clinic, but asked the court to treat it as a negligence, not as an attempt to deliberately disobey the law, but the judge disagreed with such a view on the situation. The BBC reports that the General Medical Council has extended a probe into Webberley for a further 12 months.
