Important GRS Surgery Info

Kia ora e te whanau, we have an important update about Genital Reconstruction Surgery from the Ministry of Health:

Ministry of Health statement

Were you referred for Gender Confirmation Surgery prior to 2015? The Ministry of Health are trying to check they have your correct contact details and whether there are health conditions that require management prior to surgery. The Ministry haven’t heard back from some postal addresses and we are keen to ensure everyone who wants surgery can access it. If this is you, can you please get into contact with gender.surgery@health.govt.nz

Gender Minorities Aotearoa also recommends that all people who have been referred to the waiting list should update their contact details with their GP and their local DHB, to ensure they can be contacted by the Ministry of Health.
