The NHS announced that an independent review is to take place into gender identity services for children and young people, with a focus on how care can be improved.

It’s an area of healthcare that Newsnight has covered several times over the last year, and which is rapidly changing.

Newsnight has learned that staff concerns about some practices at the NHS’s specialist children’s clinic date back more than a decade.

Newsnight’s Health Correspondent Deborah Cohen reports and this film was produced by Hannah Barnes.
