The document has been developed as the policy for the planning of Specialised Adult Gender Identity Services for Welsh patients. The policy applies to residents of all seven Health Boards in Wales.

The purpose of this document is to:

  • Set out the circumstances under which patients will be able to access Specialised Adult Gender Identity Services;
  • clarify the referral process and;
  • define the criteria that patients must meet in order to access treatment.

This policy applies to the Specialised Gender Identity Services which are planned and funded by WHSSC. There are a number of local Gender Identity assessment services which are planned and funded by Local Health Boards; this policy does not apply to those services.
