On the 19th February, the Sexual Health Society of Queensland hosted a clinical meeting on Phalloplasty Surgery presented by Dr Hans Goossen and Mr Max Mackenzie. Following on from that meeting, the Society’s committee decided to draft a submission calling for access to public surgery for Transgender Queenslanders. The letter, based on a previous correspondence sent some years before by Dr Darren Russell, was forwarded to the Health Minister, Hon Dr Steven Miles MP, the Director General Mr Michael Walsh, and the Chair of the Sexual Health Ministerial Advisory Committee Emeritus Professor Cindy Shannon SHMAC. In that submission, the SHSQ drew attention to the significant lack of public access to optimal surgical services for the Trans community and the heavy burden of cost for those seeking private access.
The SHSQ recommended that a Working Party be established to investigate this gap in care and identify how Queensland Health could respond. Both the SHMAC and Dr Steven Miles MP responded favourably, with the Health Minister offering in principle support for such a Working Party and encouraging the SHSQ to investigate further. Consequently, the SHSQ has recently contacted the SHMAC again, advising them of the Minister’s response and once more encouraging the establishment of a Working Party, either through the SHMAC or through the newly established Clinical Network.
