This will now happen as part of a two-step process:
- You will be invited to meet with a Clinical Psychologist to complete your diagnostic assessment. This assessment will also be a referral point for some elements of your treatment such as speech and language therapy, facial hair removal and specific psychological interventions, if required.
- Following Step 1, you will be offered a medical appointment with one of our specialist Doctors who will be able to initiate your treatment for hormone therapy and discuss surgery referrals, if appropriate.
You will also be allocated a Named Professional
after Step 1, who will offer you support and advice whilst waiting for your assessment to be concluded. Your Named Professional will be your continuing point of contact and support within The Laurels.
Unable to attend your assessment?
If you are unable to attend your assessment, please let us know, so we can offer your appointment to someone else who is on our waiting list.
