#NHSGenderID – NHS England host Gender Identity twitter clubs to improve services

Here’s the deal, the NHS and the Department of Health know they have it wrong in terms of supporting gender variant people and by their own admission, are not sure how to get it right. Recently, they seem to have come to a groundbreaking solution – “Why don’t we ask trans* people what they think?”

This is happening, now.. Today in fact! NHS England are hosting a series of twitter clubs using the hashtag #NHSGenderId:

•Friday 15 November 4 pm, focusing on Trans women
•Wednesday 20 November 12 pm, focusing on Trans men
•Tuesday 26 November 8 pm, focusing on Trans* & non-binary trans people
Suggested topics for consideration are as follows:
–What works well in the gender identity services?
–What are the gaps? How can they be addressed?
–What does good look like?
–How can we make a difference to people’s lives?
Please get involved, be engaged and be honest.. I feel like these topics are going to invite a lot of anger (and rightly so), but constructive criticism and suggested solutions will be so, so valuable!
