Your life in your choice of gender

Experiencing life in the social role that matches your gender is an important time in your life. 

Transition involves a profound change in your life; this may seem daunting but we are here to help. There are a range of challenges to be addressed during your transition, so we’ve prepared a checklist to help you prepare.

This list is not exhaustive. Transition involves much, much more than the obvious medical interventions of hormone therapy and surgery. You will also need to consider its social and legal implications, from formally changing your name through to dealing with the emotional aspects of informing family and friends.

We will support you in all aspects of your transition and will provide you with a personalised file to hold all this information.

Good practice guidelines require people to live in a gender appropriate role for at least a year before they are referred for surgery.
