The West of England Specialist Gender Identity Clinic is a centre of excellence for the provision of advice and treatment for gender dysphoria. We accept referrals from across the country and provide a personalised care and treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
To be referred to the West of England Specialist Gender Identity Clinic, you need to be aged 17 or over and registered with a GP in England. If they feel it appropriate your GP will make a referral to our service. The clinic is also now open to self-referrals. We are currently working out the best way to do this. Please bear with us. We will provide an update here soon.
We know that people have many questions and worries about themselves, or as a carer or loved one of someone who has gender identity concerns. We hope our frequently asked questions will help.
We know that it can often be difficult for family members and friends to understand why someone close to them must change their gender social role or that they have concerns or questions about their gender identity.
