Information about – How it works and how much it costs
GenderGP is an online health and wellbeing service, which provides advice & support to members of the trans community, & those who care for them
Our vision is to provide low-cost, timely, accessible private healthcare – for everyone – wherever they are, whoever they are and however old they are. We do this by using telemedicine to enable people to access our services from the comfort and safety of their own home. The service has grown organically over the last few years into an international organisation that helps people from all over the world. As well as our work supporting the health and wellbeing needs of the trans community, we are dedicated to improving access to healthcare through our advocacy and campaigning work.
The GenderGP Appraisal Pathway
This is a pathway designed by GenderGP which allows you to be in charge of your gender journey.
We believe that you are the expert in your gender, and by offering our expertise in healthcare, we can make sure that your medical transition is suited to what you need and is delivered in the safest way possible.
By going through this process you will be able to provide us with information about you and your health and your gender feelings. This will allow us to come to a joint agreement on the best treatment for you.
If you are in the UK or the EU, we can use our private prescription service. If you are outside the EU then we will carry out any necessary assessments and then issue you with a Treatment Summary for your provider so they can do blood testing and prescribe under our direct supervision.
We will make all the decisions on medication and blood results to keep you safe.
Working with the NHS
We are very happy to work with the NHS in any way we can.
Sometimes GP surgeries are very happy to help you while you are under our care, and sometimes they are not. It is a bit of a postcode lottery sadly. The GMC, BMA and CQC all have very clear guidance that says that trans people should not be discriminated against if they access private care.
