We work hard to make sure our services are fair and equitable for all our patients. We work closely with many groups in the community to ensure that their needs are met and that their feelings and opinions on our services are taken into account.
Often, it's useful for our staff to understand the specific needs of particular groups of patients. We filmed Kelly, one of our transgender patients, explaining her needs and have now made this available for all our staff with the aim of enabling better understanding.
Support for the transgendered in Gloucestershire and beyond is available at www.gloscats.org.uk
Children and adolescent transgendered people may also want to look at Mermaids, a support group for young trans people and their families.
Furthe resources and information on gender identity are available at gires
