NHS Gender Dysphoria Clinics

Trans and non-binary people's general health needs are the same as anyone else's. But trans people may have specific health needs in relation to gender dysphoria.

Your particular needs may be best addressed by transgender health services offered by NHS gender dysphoria clinics (GDCs).

All NHS GDCs are commissioned by NHS England, who set the service specifications for how they work.

A GP or another health professional can refer you directly to one of the 8 GDCs. You do not need an assessment by a mental health service first. Neither does the GP need prior approval from their Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). 

The websites of the clinics listed on this page also have useful information for you to think about before you see a GP.

We're here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone.

We believe we're stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain - in some of our greatest institutions - so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.

But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are
