Welcome to our new look May newsletter!  

We have been incredibly busy at GenderGP over the past few weeks, working hard to streamline your experience with us. 
As you will be aware, at the end of April we trialled a new triage system as part of our newly refreshed, redesigned and reinvigorated GenderGP Appraisal Pathway. We are delighted to report that it has been a huge success and many of the challenges that we know were causing frustration, are well on the way to being resolved. 
In a bid to capitalise on this success we have streamlined our information gathering and sharing via the new GenderGP Appraisal Pathway section of the website.

We will no longer rely on traditional message exchanges, which can lead to delays in you getting what you need. Instead, our new Appraisal Pathway will enable you, the user, to truly take control. 
Simply click on the link that most applies to your situation and provide all of the information requested. A member of our specialist team will then review your details and ensure your request is processed as quickly and seamlessly as possible. 
We like to call it informed consent in action

While many of our service users prefer to manage their care independently, we know that some of our patients prefer a more hands-on approach. In response, we will be announcing the introduction of a number of brand-new services over the coming weeks so watch this space!
We look forward to helping you!
