High Quality Service for Trans People

Guide To Supporting Patients Accessing Specialist Gender Identity Services

Section 3.0

What this section covers:

  • Suggestions for indicators of good quality services – getting it right/getting it wrong
  • A special note about children and young people
  • A special note on cancer prevention screening.

How an individual GP conducts themselves when trans people access NHS services makes a significant impact on how the patient experiences care. Section 1 showed how in law and policy, trans people are entitled to the same high quality standards of care as any other citizen. This section sets out some ideas about what good quality care might look like and when this falls short.


3.1 - Getting It Right

3.2 - A Special Note on Children and Young People

3.3 - A Special Note on Screening: Screen for the Organs Present
