SGDWG Community Hui – Wellington

SGDWG Community Hui – Wellington

GMA is part of the Sex and Gender Diverse Health Outcomes Working Group (SGDWG) – alongside a number of DHB healthcare providers and clinicians, as well as trans and intersex people working in this area.

The SGDWG works across Capital and Coast District Health Board (Wellington and Kapiti region) to develop appropriate, well-resourced, and equitable gender affirming healthcare.

The SGDWG is holding it’s second annual community event, with a panel discussion/panel presentations explaining what services are now available and how you can access them, as well as plans for the near future.

There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.

This will be held on on Tuesday 10th of November at 5.30pm, at the the Newtown Community and Cultural Centre on the corner of Colombo and Rintoul Streets in Newtown.

The Newtown Community and Cultural Centre is mobility accessible, and there will be kai and drinks provided.

Database Upgrade

Our database is now searchable by region as well as type of provider, and has a search function where you can type in a name or other search terms.

In 2020 we are working on offering online training and info to all clinics in NZ. They will then be added to the database, and you will be able to search for providers who have had the training and are using the national guidelines.
