The Cass Review

In 2020, NHS England appointed Dr Hilary Cass – a retired consultant paediatrician and former President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health – to chair an Independent Review of Gender Identity Services for Children and Young People, whose purpose was to examine current models of care for children and young people experiencing gender dysphoria.

The Review examined all relevent research and evidence and spoke with a wide range of stakeholders and other interested parties.

The final report was published on 10 April 2024 and can be downloaded from:
