Access the care you need
We are here to support patients with gender dysphoria, through to transition and afterwards. We are able make a referral to a specialist gender clinic. We are not able to prescribe hormones until patients have been seen by a specialist. Afterwards we work in conjunction to prescribe and monitor your treatment (shared care). We appreciate that NHS waiting lists are long and we can help during this time, including mental health support.
We are not able to enter into shared care prescribing for patients using private gender services based outside the UK or not registered with the Care Quality Commission.
Veteran Friendly Practice
We are an Armed Forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice.
This means we have a dedicated doctor who has a specialist knowledge of service related health conditions and Veteran specific health services. This is important in helping Veterans to get the best care and treatment.
If you are a Veteran please let us know.
Veteran's Health Team
DR RICHARD HUGHES
We recognise that homeless patients find it difficult to register with a GP and access good healthcare. We work closely with local charities to ensure that patients can register easily and be seen the same day to address their health concerns promptly.
Our social prescribers can help with advice about housing.
We offer a yearly health check with the GP (doctor). You can come on your own or with your carer. At the end of the appointment the doctor will give you a Health Action Plan. This will say what you, your carer and your doctors are going to do to help you stay healthy.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Easyhealth.org.uk is full of brilliant information that is easier to understand.
