Official Information Act Request - Endocrine Services
Under section 14 of the Official Information Act, the Whanganui District Health Board (WDHB) received
a partial transfer of your request from the Ministry of Health. You requested the following information:
4. How many, if any, transgender individuals have been referred to endocrine services in New
Zealand in the past five years, broken down by year?
5. How many, if any, transgender individuals have been referred to endocrine services in New
Zealand in the past five years, broken down by DHB?
Whanganui District Health Board's response:
The Whanganui District Health Board does not directly provide endocrinology services as these are
provided by tertiary level providers for our population. Accordingly we do not have volume information
for transgender individuals who were referred for these services.
Should you have any further queries, please contact, contact our acting OIA co-ordinator Maree Langford
at [email address].
