The GMC offers robust guidance for GPs who are supporting trans/non-binary patients in a primary care setting.
GPs should collaborate with NHS Gender Dysphoria services or any other gender specialists to ensure trans/non-binary people receive timely and efficient care.
This may include:
GPs are not expected to assess or diagnose Gender Dysphoria, but they are expected to refer people who are questioning their gender to an appropriate service.
If you have specific questions about a patient’s care we host regular telephone surgeries for GPs who have patients that are accessing the TransPlus service at 56 Dean Street.
However, you may find the answer to your question in these pages.
Updating your patient’s records
Don’t disclose a patient’s gender history unless it is directly relevant to the condition or its likely treatment. It’s unlawful to disclose a patient’s gender history without their consent.
