NHS England has completed the procurement selection process for a new gender dysphoria service as a pilot for evaluation, in Greater Manchester. The development of the pilot follows a national commitment to improving access and user experience of adult gender services (for individuals over 17 years of age) and make care available more locally.
Indigo Gender Service will be delivered as a partnership between gtd healthcare, a-not-for-profit organisation with an established presence of primary care and urgent care services in the north-west, and LGBT Foundation.
The new service, which is planned to open later this year, will initially focus on supporting people who are on a waiting list for a gender dysphoria clinic appointment, are already registered with a GP in Greater Manchester, and are eligible for NHS treatment.
