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.

We are now considering the proposals in light of the feedback and a formal response to the consultation will be published on this page in due course.

In the meantime, if you would like to stay informed about NHS England's work on gender identity service, you can register as a stakeholder of the Gender Identity Clinical Reference Group.
