Gender reassignment - administration processes and procedures

The request was successful.

Dear Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust,

What documentation is provided to be completed by service users who begin, are undergoing, or have completed (including having been assigned a new NHS number) gender reassignment in order to change their details held by the trust?

What systems are in place in relation to handling patient records, both electronic and hard copy, for service users held in a previous and current identity? Including alert systems, quarantining, linking of records, data security, data accuracy, etc.

What systems and policies are in place in relation to services users, new and existing, who refuse to disclose their previous medical history in relation to previous identities and gender reassignment?

What systems and policies are in place regarding service users who obtain a gender recognition certificate?

What systems, reviews and oversights are in place to ensure the trust is reviewing and updating its policies and practices in relation to service users who are or have undergone gender reassignment, those who obtain a gender recognition certificate, and for complying with changes in legal requirements and regulations in relation to gender reassignment?

Yours faithfully,

L-M Nelson (Miss)
