GCLS Survey

This report is part of ongoing wider research on patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) and their applications to transgender health services. The research aims to investigate PROMs’ potential to assess the quality of care given by transgender services, from the perspective of service users. As of yet, no conclusions have been drawn on the GCLS or the research project at large due to its ongoing nature. This report has been published on the NRGDS website in the interests of transparency.
