Extract from Document

We have started to address the issues raised by trans and other gender-diverse people and, in doing so, we have developed a dialogue with these communities to support and inform us in the development of a new specification and policy, and to develop a continuous process to improve our understanding of their needs.

We will continue productive and influential engagement with these communities and, in doing so, improve participation and access to information through events and on-line information, enabling people to access accurate and up-to-date information on the full range of services available to them.

We have established a taskforce that has started working to bring together the issues identified by service users, commissioners and service providers into a coherent and comprehensive action plan. This plan aims to address problems in accessing help with gender incongruence-related healthcare needs and develop the necessary service provider capacity to deliver this in a timely and effective manner.
