Gender Identity Services for Adults

Closed 16 Oct 2017

Opened 7 Jul 2017


NHS England's consultation on 'specialised gender identity services for adults (17 and above) has now closed. Through consultation we sought 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. There was a good level of interest in the consultation, so thank you to everyone who took part either in writing or by attending one of our events. - you can read the analysis of responses.

The report on the outcome of the consultation has now been published. You can read the consultation report and the service specifications:
