Update on gender identity development service for children and young people

In 2016 NHS England put in place a new service specification for gender identity development services for children and young people and committed to conducting a review of this specification and associated policies for 2020.

An independent expert group is now being established to make recommendations for a review of puberty suppressants and cross-sex hormones. It will also consider whether changes are required to existing clinical policies. NICE will also undertake a thorough review of the latest clinical evidence to help inform the working group’s review.
