A GP surgery has been criticised for asking parents to state if their baby is trans or non-binary.
Woodgate Valley Health Centre in Birmingham claims the options are part of its form for new joiners to the surgery.
Parents are also given the choice of registering their newborn’s gender as “other” or “not stated”.
NHS England have said that the options are not part of a nationwide policy.

One patient shared a picture of the form online where its options included “male (including trans man)”, “female (including trans woman)”, “non-binary”, “other (not listed)” or “not stated”.
The decision has enraged Britons.
Speaking to GB News, one person said: "It's ridiculous. You should just have your baby and bring the baby up the sex it was.
"And if they want to change that sex whenever, at an older age, let them do it. But not to decide for them at five or six or two or three. 'Oh, I want my child to be a daughter, I want to be a son', that's just wrong."
Another added: "It's the parent's decision because the child cannot make that choice. So I think once the child is able to make the choice for themselves, then it is the child's choice. But until that point, it's the parents."
Free Speech Union director Toby Young said the form is “an invitation to woke parents to impose their crazy ideas about sex and gender on their newborns”.
“Wouldn’t it be more responsible of this GP practice to refer parents who cannot tell the sex of their babies by looking at their genitals to a psychiatrist?" he told The Sun.
A spokesperson for the surgery said: “The form is our standard new patient registration form for any new patient . . . which includes, but is not limited to, parents registering a newborn baby.”
It comes after a woman in her 70s found 18 gender options on a patient form, which included “two-spirit” used by indigenous communities.
The form featured the traditional male and female choices, but also offers a huge range of other options.

These include passing, two-spirit, third gender, transgender, agender, bigender, cisgender, gender expression, gender fluid, gender queer and gender variant.
The outpatient survey was given to a woman in her 70s at Darlington Memorial Hospital in County Durham.
The NHS has also suffered backlash for removing the word "woman" from cancer and pregnancy web pages.
A total of 1,200 NHS doctors, nurses and health practitioners have shared their concerns with bosses in a letter.
