This interim service specification sets out how care will be provided to children and young people, and their families, who express gender incongruence and who are likely to benefit from clinical support.

The public consultation ran for 45 days from 20 October to 4 December 2022 and it received 5,183 responses. NHS England thanks all those individuals and organisations who submitted responses to the consultation.

NHS England commissioned TONIC, an independent organisation specialising in public consultation, social research and evaluation, to conduct analysis on all responses and report back on these findings. The consultation report and a detailed analysis of the responses is available below.
