Brief Summary

This NHS Specialised Services Circular is intended to provide clarity to GPs on the roles and responsibilities of specialist providers within the gender dysphoria care pathway, and to encourage collaboration between GPs and specialists in the delivery of care for trans and gender-variant people.

Extract from Circular

GPs have an important role in the healthcare of people with atypical gender identity development, not only around the time of their transition to a social role and physical development that is congruent to their gender identity, but also for the rest of their lives when they no longer have a need for specialised gender identity services. GPs are urged to collaborate with GICs, working together to provide a seamless healthcare service for patients. 

GPs are encouraged to cooperate with GICs in the prescription and monitoring of drug treatments for gender dysphoria, in compliance with the Interim Gender Dysphoria Protocol and Service Guideline 2013/14 and the Manual of Prescribed Specialised Services.
