National Referral Support Service for The NHS Gender Incongruence Service For Children And Young People

The NHS is building new services for children and young people with gender incongruence, alongside a managed closure of the existing Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) based at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust by March 2024.

To help facilitate a smooth transition into the new services, Arden and GEM is providing a National Referral Support Service. We will hold the national waiting list on behalf of NHS England, NHS Wales and the new providers of Children and Young People’s Gender Incongruence Services.

We will manage the national waiting list and transfer children and young people from the waiting list to the new services once they are established, in order of their original referral date.

We are not able to offer clinical advice as part of our service, so if you need help from a trained healthcare provider, please contact your GP or referrer in the first instance.
