What’s happening with trans healthcare in Scotland?

A Scottish Trans guide to the ‘NHS gender identity services: strategic action framework 2022–2024’ — What’s happened, and what still needs to?

Last updated: 17 June 2024

The Scottish Government introduced a ‘strategic action framework’ to improve gender identity services in December 2021.

We’ve put together this guide to talk you through the 17 commitments in the framework, and break down what each of them mean, what’s happened so far, as well as letting trans and non-binary people know how they can have their voices heard in the process.

But now that we’re close to the end of the framework, it’s clear to us that services are unlikely to be ‘transformed’ in the way we had hoped by 2024. So throughout this guide, you’ll also see our thoughts on what’s worked, what hasn’t, and what more there is to do.

We’ll aim to update this guide every few months, so you always know what’s happening.
