The West of England Specialist Gender Identity Service accepts referrals from any GP in England for people aged 17 and above with Gender Dysphoria.
If your patient is under 17 years of age, please contact The Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) which is a highly specialised clinic for young people presenting with difficulties with their gender identity.
Referrals will also be accepted from other healthcare professionals, but it is important that this is done in conjunction with the person’s registered GP.
GPs elsewhere in the United Kingdom may still be able to refer, but they will need to approach the relevant NHS commissioners for approval.
Please fill in the following ‘GP referral’, attaching a current medical summary and any relevant diagnostic reports, for example - Mental Health, ASC, Substance Misuse, etc. This will help us to process your referral efficiently, without having to request further information from you.
