We take referrals from all over the UK and demand for the service is high. Clinics are tightly scheduled, and if you are late for your appointment you may not be seen that day. Please allow plenty of extra travel time and carry a note of contact details. If delays are unavoidable, please telephone ahead.
The Gender Identity Clinic
179-183 Fulham Palace Road
020 8483 2801
The clinic is at the junction of Greyhound Road and Fulham Palace Road, located on the first and second floors above the Sainsbury’s Local supermarket.
The main entrance is on Greyhound Road. It is a wooden door immediately alongside the Greyhound News newsagent. Please ring the intercom and speak to the receptionist to be let into the building.
The clinic is easily accessible by most means of transport. London roads can be very busy so you should allow plenty of time to get to your appointment. Public transport may be a better alternative.
London Underground (tube)
- Hammersmith – District and Piccadilly lines (15 mins walk)
- Barons court – District and Piccadilly lines (10 mins walk)
From Hammersmith Broadway buses 211, 220, 295 and 190 travel down Fulham Palace Road stopping close by Charing Cross Hospital, a short walk away from the GIC.
Greyhound Road (where the entrance is located) is most easily accessible from Fulham Palace Road.
The clinic does not have its own parking spaces. There are pay and display parking bays on Greyhound Road and other local streets. There are also parking spaces at the nearby Charing Cross Hospital, although these are more expensive. You may need to have a blood test at Charing Cross Hospital immediately after your appointment so we advise you to bring sufficient change to pay for extra parking time.
Claiming for expenses
If you are on jobseekers allowance or income support, you may be able to claim travel expenses for attending the clinic, provided you have travelled by the cheapest means of transport possible. To claim this, you’ll need to bring proof of your benefits entitlement.
The clinic building has full disability access, although the lift cannot accommodate any wheelchair wider than standard size. Please let us know if this is likely to be a problem – an appointment can then be arranged on the ground floor level in other, nearby, Trust premises.
