London, May 12 (ANI): A British transsexual, who made a bid to boost her breast size on the NHS but was refused, has taken the matter to the High Court.

The woman, referred to only as Miss C, was seeking to overturn a refusal of funding for the treatment through a judicial review, reports the Daily Express.

Miss C, who began hormone treatment 12 years ago, says she was left in physical and psychological limbo by West Berkshire Primary Care Trust's decision not to pay for her "breast augmentation".

A case review committee ruled there was no compelling health reason for the procedure, which it described as cosmetic.

The court heard medical experts told Miss C her current size was insufficient to secure the "final transition from male to female".

The hearing continues. (ANI)
