Increase funding for NHS Transgender Services.

Petition Details

With unprecedented demand for transgender services, users are forced to wait an unreasonable amount of time to access the services they need. Additional funding to drop the waiting times (Stretching into years) is required and for local services to be able to care for transgender people.

Additional Information

Recent data released by Gender Identity Clinics suggests that some transgender people are waiting in excess of 4 years to access services to give them a pathway to being comfortable in who they are. No other treatment pathway has waits this long for treatment and it is unacceptable. A move to localized treatment as well as additional funding can reduce the waiting times that transgender people have to endure.
