Note: Informed Consent
In some places, medical professionals now operate on an ‘Informed Consent’ model for prescribing hormones (HRT). In short, informed consent means that if you are properly informed and you are capable of making your own health choices, you are allowed to do this. It means that if you see a psychologist, they are simply checking that you are informed and capable, rather than making you ”prove your gender”. NZ is moving toward this.
