Australia's only transgender clinic "shut down"

Fairfax is reporting that Australia's only sex change clinic has been shut down temporarily, with reports that half of the patients diagnosed as transgendered had borderline personality disorder and should never have been operated on.

The claims come on top of claims by a former patient who says that she was misdiagnosed as male, and is seeking for the founder to be censured by Victorian medical authorities, as reported in the Australian.

The claims clearly highlight the potential risks for both doctors and patients in undertaking the procedures.
