Following hot on the heels of the new Scottish protocol for transition-related services, the Department of Health has published a draft guide for England.
They’re not holding a formal consultation on the document (meaning that it’s not available on the Department of Health website), but are “seeking the views of stakeholders […] to find out if the ‘journey’ outlined in the document reflects the experience transgender people actually have and, where there are differences, what they are.”
This is a really important opportunity for you to offer feedback on the proposed guide to English services.
A copy of the document is available below:

I’m planning to post my own analysis of the draft protocol when I’ve had time to read through it properly.
