It’s easy to help patients with gender variance – here’s what you can do


Dear Dr Webberly You state you have a special interest in this topic. You have not stated that you run a private clinic for transgender patients. It would be useful for all concerned if you could state which bits of your advice is for your private patients and which for NHS ones. It would also be useful if you could point out where the resources are for NHS GPs. Locally agreed shared care agreements, monitoring via the near patient testing arrangements and administration costs of any injections. Without these minimum resources then all management should stay with the gender identity clinics which are part of specialised commissioning. not even secondary care and certainly not primary care
