GenderGP’s Approach to Assessments: Yes you are trans enough!

We are often asked what “test” people have to pass in order to qualify for treatment. At GenderGP, we do not believe in putting people through lengthy assessments. By the time you come to us, you will have a better understanding about your gender than anyone, our role is to help you to begin – or continue – your journey.

The diagnostic criteria for trans children must be updated

When speaking to professionals who work with and diagnose trans children I was shocked to discover that the tool used is sexist, outdated and, in my view, only serves to reinforce gender stereotypes. Read journalist, Taryn De Vere’s, latest post about her experiences as the mum of a trans daughter in full here.

BBC3 Request - Case studies needed


BBC3 are looking to interview young trans people (15-23) for a programme they are making about the ever increasing NHS waiting lists and how the wait for care adversely impacts their mental wellbeing. If you have struggled as a result of access to care on the NHS being delayed and it has led you to take drastic action, they want to hear from you. Find out more by contacting: donald.stewart@propercontent.com.

Our survey said!

Thank you to all those who completed our survey last month which looked at how many GPs had agreed to prescribe bridging hormones to trans people in line with best practice. Read our findings in this latest blog post. The results came as a shock - even to us!

Making private healthcare more affordable

At GenderGP we are always looking for ways to help make private healthcare more affordable and accessible, while you wait for public health services. In response to your suggestions, we have introduced a split payment plan, allowing you to pay your set-up fee in instalments. When you use our self-service Appraisal Pathway form, you can choose to pay the fee in one go, or by instalments. You can complete the medical, psychological and personal questionnaires, arrange any necessary blood tests, and have your Information Gathering Session while the instalments are being settled. As soon as full payment has been received, your case will be put forward to the medical team for Final Review to start your medical transition.
