Transgender health information & resources added

Posted on:

It is extremely important that all patients have access to appropriate and high quality healthcare.

Despite a recent study indicating that transgender identity in GP patient records has increased five-fold over the past twenty years, many trans and non-binary patients continue to have negative experiences when trying to access healthcare.

Trans and non-binary people’s day to day healthcare requirements are the same as anyone else’s. But trans people may have specific health needs in relation to gender dysphoria (distress that may occur when your biological sex does not match your gender identity)

To best support our transgender identity patients, and to help tackle some of the issues that the transgender and non-binary community face in accessing the right care, we have compiled a list of useful health information, links and resources.
