The Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) in Hammersmith (sometimes known as the Charing Cross GIC) is the largest gender identity clinic in the world.
We deal with a wide variety of people who have issues around their gender.
Not everybody who sees us wants or needs to transition to another gender. We accept appropriate referrals before a person has transitioned as we make no assumptions about the best course of action for any given individual.
There is no expectation that a person will transition after they’ve been referred to us. Support around transition, hormones, surgery etc are all possibilities that can be discussed when you see us.
We accept referrals from all over the UK.
Help and support
Attending the GIC can be a stressful experience and we will always do our best to make you feel supported. It is generally beneficial to make the rest of your life as smooth running as possible. This might include getting your finances in order, having some kind of steady employment (voluntary or paid) or attending full or part-time education.
We may encourage you to take up a full or part-time job if you do not already have one.
It can also be daunting to make new contacts and friends when you have gender issues, but experiencing life in a reassigned gender role is important before making irreversible decisions. Having friends as well as professionals to support you through any changes will also make the process much easier.
