New guidance from the Nursing and Midwifery Council suggests that nurses and midwives in the UK could be banned from practicing medicine if they “misgender” a patient.

The guidance has drawn concerns about adhering to leftist gender theories and the potential risks to patients.

The Tavistock Centre in London, UK’s premier child transgender clinic, is set to be shut down after its practices were deemed unsafe and is facing legal action. (Trending: First Moon Mission In 50 Years Blasts Off)

Despite this, the UK’s National Health Service is planning to open smaller gender clinics for children and offer transgender treatments to children as young as seven years old.

“Persistently and deliberately misgendering a trans person is contrary to the requirements of the code to treat people with kindness and respect,” the Guidelines from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) regulator stated.

“Although gender-critical beliefs are protected under the Equality Act, this does not mean that those with gender-critical beliefs can ‘misgender’ trans persons with impunity.”

“For example, if a transman presents with stomach aches, the nurse might need to ascertain whether the transman, who is biologically female, could be pregnant,” Genspect Stella O’Malley said. “While a person’s gender identity might be important for some people’s sense of self, their biological sex can be a matter of life and death within a hospital setting.”

“This is akin to saying it is a ‘belief’ that water is wet… no person in the history of the world has changed sex – many have changed their gender identity but no one has changed sex.”

The guidance “is rooted in the law, and helps our colleagues to reach swift and fair decisions in fitness to practise cases,” Matthew McClelland, executive director of strategy and insight for the NMC stated.

“It makes it clear that people have a right to freedom of expression and to protected beliefs but that there may be some circumstances when what a nurse, midwife, or nursing associate says, and importantly how they say it, could impact their fitness to practise,” he added.
