Gender Clinic COVID-19 Update – 24 April

The impact of COVID-19 on access to health services is a fluid situation. Due to the effective actions in reducing COVID-19 infections, the National Cabinet on 21 April announced relaxation of restrictions on elective surgery. This may restore limited access to gender-affirming surgeries in coming weeks. Your surgeon will advise you when that is the case.

Gender Clinic services continue to be temporarily suspended, as outlined in the 27 March update. However, as our staff have not yet been reassigned, we are continuing some assessments that had already commenced. Because this could change rapidly, clients are being selected on the basis that their assessments can quickly be concluded. Your Gender Clinic clinician will advise you when that is the case.

If you are seeking a referral for approval for hormones or surgery, please find attached an updated list of providers, with information on what services they are currently providing. This list is not complete, and you can also consult the list of private providers on our website. Please note that the information provided here only relates to the current COVID-19 period and that these services may change as conditions improve.

Please advise us if there are any inaccuracies, or of changes to services being provided.
