Accessing our service

Consultation with your GP

To be referred to the West of England Specialist Gender Identity Clinic, you will first have to approach your GP who can make an initial referral for assessment. 

Providing you are aged 17 or over and registered with a GP in England, they will be able to refer you to the West of England Specialist Gender Identity Clinic. 

Can I be transferred from another Gender Identity Clinic?

If you wish to transfer from another NHS Gender Identity Clinic ask them to make a referral for a transfer of care to us, and inform your GP.

What happens after referral?

After receiving your referral, we will first screen for suitability and then send you a confirmation letter. This will also be sent to your GP or referring service.
