NHS England Trans Questionnaires Aug 2017

NHS England have today issued two questionnaires – one seeking trans people’s experiences of using gynaecology services in England in the last 5 years, and one seeking trans people’s experiences of using non-GIC speech and language therapy services in England in the last 5 years.

Under the draft NHS specialist gender identity services protocol (currently also out for consultation), these are both services where (some) trans people will access care from general hospital services, so presumably this feedback is intended to contribute to improving patient experiences.

For reasons best known to NHS England, this consultation runs for less than 2 weeks, in the middle of the holiday period (closing 27th August), and you have to reply by downloading a Word document, filling it out and emailing back to a named person (so not exactly super-anonymous for talking about gynaecology experiences). I have already provided feedback on this as a consultation mechanism

The surveys are here:
