Yesterday, March 10th, The Cass Review, an independent review of gender identity services for children and young people, submitted an interim report to NHS England, setting out work to date, what has been learnt so far and the approach going forward. The report does not set out final recommendations at this stage.
The report has received a mixed response both from the LGBT+ sector and beyond. A number of our member organisations reacted to the report on social media and published responses to the interim report. We have linked to these responses below.

“Children and young people with gender incongruence or dysphoria must receive the same standards of clinical care, assessment and treatment as every other child or young person accessing health services.” https://t.co/6y4y0DLZ2w

The #CassReview have released their interim report.
This report is extensive and will be subject to a wide range of interpretations.
The key focus is that the current service is no longer fit for purpose and that fundamental changes must be made to provide proper care.

The interim report from @TheCassReview has been published today. It clearly recognises that the current NHSE model is not sustainable considering the delay in access to treatment. (1/4)
