HPFT - Filming for Gender Identity Awareness Training

We are implementing a new staff training programme around gender identity in partnership with Gendered Intelligence.  As part of this training we are wanting to include film clips of people sharing their personal experiences in relation to:

•                      Expression of gender

•                      Transitions and identifying as trans, non-binary

•                      Being a friend or family member and the experience of transition of a loved one

•                      Experience of care, trans and non-binary personal journeys

We are looking for people across the trans and non-binary gender spectrum who may be interested to be involved to share their story and be interviewed briefly on camera.  All films will be used only for internal staff training (unless otherwise agreed with participants) and the filming will take place on 12th September in Hatfield.

If you know anyone interested (or are interested yourself) please can you ask people to contact hpft.equality@nhs.net  - please note that someone will get back to people after 6th September due to staff leave.

Next steps in shaping the future of specialised gender identity services

Much work continues in NHS England to shape the future of specialised gender identity services. We have convened a Programme Board for Gender Identity Services that I chair.

The Board is responsible for making recommendations to the Specialised Commissioning Oversight Group, and its scope and membership can be found on the gender identity services clinical reference group page. The Board’s independent members were appointed through an open recruitment process.

I’m pleased to announce the publication of the report of the independent analysis of responses to our consultation on proposed service specifications. We had significant interest in the consultation – over 800 respondents, and I want to thank everyone who took part either in writing or by attending one of our events.
