The request was successful.

Dear Sandyford NHS GGC,
I would hereby like to submit a Freedom of Information request, regarding the waiting
list for the Sandyford Gender Identity Clinic.

Could you kindly provide the current number of patients awaiting their first
appointment at the clinic, as well as the longest time someone has been on the wait
list to date, stated in days, along with data on how many patients have been
accepted and processed since January 2020.

I would also appreciate it if you could tell me of any plans to accelerate the waiting
list, as I and many others have found the lack of public information extremely
distressing, and a constant drain on Mental Health.

Yours faithfully,

Cassie
