Waiting Times

Please continue to consult the website for updates on this information. Please do not telephone The Laurels regarding waiting times as reception staff are only able to provide the information which is updated on the website.

Due to an unprecedented demand on the service and challenges with staffing, we are currently unable to estimate your waiting times. 
The service and the Trust have sought to address these issues over time with revision of care pathways to improve capacity, as well as seeking to proactively recruit appropriate qualified clinicians. While we implement these changes we thank you for your patience.

If you are 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. 

Again, we apologise for our lengthy waiting times.
