Consultation on specialised gender services - deadline extended until 16 October

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in News on 20th September, 2017

NHS England has launched a 12 week consultation on specialised gender identity services for adults (17 and above). The consultation is open until 16 October 2017 .

NHS England would like to hear people’s views on two proposed service specifications: one for how Gender Identity Clinics will deliver specialised outpatient services; and another for how surgical units will deliver surgical interventions. The service specifications have been developed taking into account the outcome of engagement with the trans community and clinical experts and describe new proposals for how specialised gender identity services will be delivered in the future.

Both the surgical and non-surgical documents can be accessed here.

A number of community events, webinars and a public workshop will be held in September. Find out more about these here.
