I would once again like to thank Dr Cass for her excellent report which provides much needed clarity for services and patients. We are working with NHS England to take forward its recommendations.

NHS England has committed £17.1 million to the two new regional hubs for Children and Young People gender services in 2024/25.

We are providing record levels of investment to transform NHS mental health services in England. Since 2019 spending has increased by £4.7 billion in cash terms.
