LGBT Conversion Therapy

The following is an extract from the Westminster Hall debate on LGBT conversion therapy on 8 March 2021.

I am also aware that waiting times for gender identity services are currently very long. We are taking meaningful actions to address the historical problems that have resulted in long waiting times, and I am pleased that we will establish at least three new gender identity clinics over 2021, with the first of these opened by the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust in July.

Letter of correction from the Minister for Equalities, the hon. Member for Saffron Walden (Kemi Badenoch).

An error has been identified in my response to the debate.

The correct response should have been:

I am also aware that waiting times for gender identity services are currently very long. We are taking meaningful actions to address the historical problems that have resulted in long waiting times, and I am pleased that we have established three new gender identity clinics throughout 2020 and 2021, with the first of these opened by the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust in July 2020.
