Welcome to GenderGP

GenderGP provides access to a whole range of specialists that can provide advice, treatment and support to gender diverse people.
Our vision is to enable and support anyone to happily and comfortably embrace their gender wherever you live in the world and however old you are.
We offer direct access to a diverse range of experts who provide timely, accessible and affordable help and support.
We believe in self empowerment and self identification which puts the individual in charge of their own gender journey.

Counselling & Therapy

Whatever stage you are at on your journey, whether you are gender variant yourself or are supporting someone who is, we believe that having a counsellor or therapist ‘in your pocket’ can be incredibly empowering. Our network of therapists are specifically trained in working with gender variant people of all ages, to help them on their journey, at whatever stage they might be.

Friendship & Support

We understand that, for some, being gender variant can feel lonely but, rest-assured, you are not alone. The GenderGP community is a safe place where you can read about other people in similar situations and interact and share your opinions on social media (you can find us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @GenderGP). Follow us or ask us to follow you, and join our network of advocates and supporters.

Information

It is widely acknowledged that before ‘coming out’, gender variant people go through a process of ‘coming in’. This involves consuming as much information as possible to help them to better understand their situation and the options ahead. Our website is an excellent resource to help with your research. You will find access to questions and answers, important resources, the latest news, our blog – which is regularly updated – as well as the GenderGP podcast and more. Explore our resources in more depth.

Medical Care

If you need medical advice regarding hormones, blockers, transitioning, blood tests, self-medication, surgical referrals or any aspect of your trans-related healthcare, get in touch. GenderGP can arrange assessments, and evaluations as well as access to doctors who can provide safely monitored prescription medication.

Paperwork

We can help with name changes, passports, driving license changes, gender recognition certificates or letters of affirmation.

This is the best service you can find for the transgender community. They provide all the help a trans person needs at a time when you feel vulnerable and the NHS don’t want to provide the support you need and just want to gate keep and put you on long waiting lists. In my experience GenderGP are friendly and helpful and helped me in a very timely manner. They didn’t gate keep and listened to what I wanted and where I wanted to go with my transition. Within months i was on my hormone treatment and i am happily moving forward with my transition. 5 stars service from me. Much love to everyone at GenderGP keep up the brilliant work! Without you I would be stuck in a dark place forever.

I am a transwoman and after initially seeing my GP, I found my self worrying about how I would have to wait for over a year for my GIC appointment. I wanted to prevent further changes due to testosterone, including the loss of my hair. After a long time looking for faster routes, I began to lose hope and reached the end of my tether but managed to stumble across GenderGP. I sent a email message and was shocked to receive not only a reply, but actual prescriptions for the medications that I needed. To this day I don’t know where I would be if it hadn’t been for the GenderGP amazing online serve. I have recommended it already to all of my transgender friends who reside in the UK.

I found the GenderGP website after some research on transgender forums. I’ve been making steps to transition since opening up to my therapist in April. When my initial referral for Charing Cross came back and mentioned a 13 month waiting list I wasn’t surprised, but it made up my mind to look at private care to bridge the gap to my first NHS GIC appointment. The GenderGP team are professional, attentive and supportive, providing the relevant information and guidance for each step of the process.the team have been fantastic throughout the consultation and the day my prescription came through I was in much happier place. Thank you,

Gender GP is providing a lifeline for myself and a friend at a time when the NHS GICs are letting us down badly (we’ve been on interminable waiting lists for 18+ months). It’s early days, but the service they have offered us so far has been compassionate, understanding, and helpful. The IGS had some questions which sounded strange and a little outdated – very much rooted in the ‘traditional’ gender binary. But in terms of support and duty of care, they’re giving the best they can under what I can only describe as exceptional circumstances, considering the current climate in the UK. The staff at Gender GP are giving us hope and helping to make our dreams real, to fully live our best lives.
