16th October 2017 - TELI submission to NHS England Adult Gender Identity Service Draft Specification Public Consultation.
Today our Health Co-Conveners Peter Dunne and Tara Hewitt submitted our response to NHS England's Consultation on the new draft specification for Adult Gender Identity Services.
We acknowledge and support the progress that is included within the draft clinical framework, which we do feel is an improvement on the current framework services are operating from. We do however have concerns that whilst a step in the right direction is positive, overall there has been a missed opportunity to remove all of the barriers and inequalities Trans and non binary people face when accessing services. To find out more details check out our full response here.

28 February 2017 - TELI joins panel at KPMG for LGBT History Month
One of our co-founders, Allan Briddock (One Pump Court), joined a panel alongside Jon Miller (partner at Brunswick Group on behalf of Open for Business) and Sarah Humphreys of ELOP to discuss the work of each of the organisations and what challenges they face at KPMG's LGBT History Month event. Allan discussed the various issues TELI is hoping to tackle in the future and the challenges that might arise along the way.
Following our inaugural conference last year, we will be returning to provide an update on the progress made throughout the year and to host a new series of expert panel discussions on trans rights. In light of the pending review of the Gender Recognition Act and Other significant areas of work we have decided to push back our conference date to early 2018. Further details to be announced soon.
Press enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always looking for further sponsors to support the work of TELI and our annual conference. To find out more information, please click here.
