Guidance On The Care Of Gender Variant People

June 2017

General Practitioners

Country of origin: UK

Gender variant (trans or transgender) people are relatively rarely seen in GP surgeries. Many GPs say that they lack the knowledge to treat those experiencing gender variant conditions, and, consequently, they are not confident to do so.

The first part of a new Department of Health publication provides an overview of care for trans people that is particularly applicable to GPs. Hormone therapy is central to transgender primary care, and issues such as assessment and diagnosis are also relevant to general practice. These topics are discussed in greater detail in Annexes C and D.

This publication is written by a team from the Gender Identity Research and Education Society that includes doctors and trans people. All the team members have specialist knowledge and experience in the transgender field.

?Guidance for GPs, other clinicians and health professionals on the care of gender variant people? is available online.
