"a Lookout for the new patients in the queue for the gender correction treatments"
"in Spite of millions of to reduce waiting times in the Western Region before the hospital stop for the new patients on the waiting list for hormone therapy for gender correction treatments. "
"the Decision is criticised now by SOME who argue that the problem is organizational."
"– It is a pity that the hospital is not able to take the discussion, " says Andreas Hernbo, president of RFSL Göteborg."
"The last few years, the Western Götlandsregionen granted large sums of money to reduce waiting times. In december, the health and sjukvårdsstyrelsen to earmark 8 million to shorten queues to healthcare for transgender people."
"Despite this, Sahlgrenska university hospital, SU, in Gothenburg, sweden, for six months back is not against more people in the queue to hormone replacement therapy at the könsbekräftande treatment, SVT News, the West was the first to report on."
"A hundred people are affected, people who have already been investigated for könsdysfori and has been referred to the endokrinmottagningen at the hospital for treatment, the only clinic in the region, which has könsbekräftande hormone replacement therapy. "
"the Other patient groups who have need of hormones, people with thyroid disorders, have not been stopped from treatment. "
"Per-Ove Stotzer, director of medicine at Sahlgrenska academy, says to Aftonbladet that the decision is because they do not want to ask people in the queue for a life long treatment if you don't know that the money is available. "
"We have a business that has grown strong for the people who are relevant for the gender correction treatments, and have too little resources to manage it," says Per-Ove Stotzer."
"The 8 new million is money in a ettårsbudget and does not give sufficient guarantees, mean Stotzer."
" We can't build a business with a lifelong treatment if we don't know that we can continue with it, it can be medically dangerous. The ball is in the regional policy makers who need to say yes to the appropriations for more than a year in the future, " says Per-Ove Stotzer."
"RFSL mean, however, that the problem lies with the hospital – not of the politicians."
"– A vårdstopp of this kind is very unusual and controversial."
"a Responsible politician: ”an Unreasonable interpretation of the Sahlgrenska”"
"Jonas Andersson (L), chair of the regional assembly and chairman of the health and sjukvårdsstyrelsen in the Western Region believe that the hospital misinterpreted the economic decision."
" We have asked for an investigation of how much money is needed for this business and has granted them. It is unfortunate that the hospital has interpreted our decision as to the just money for 2019, " says Jonas Andersson."
"– the Ambition from our side is that this will be a long term business. After all, they have not received any money at all for 2020, interpret it as that they should put down the whole business for 17 billion? It is a completely unreasonable interpretation."
"Jonas Andersson regret that the people standing in line, or want to stand in the queue, now is worried about whether they will ever get their hormone therapy."
" I hope that it is not so that the hospital does not want to receive this vårdgruppen. We have started a process to sort out the misunderstandings that may exist and expects that, during the week that will can provide clear information. It is very unfortunate that the concerned patients and relatives, " says Andersson. "
