At the Gender Reassignment Clinic you can expect to find an accepting and understanding welcome from all our staff and a considerate, caring and professional Consultant led service from your very first consultation, through to your final discharge. We know from experience how Transexual and Gender Dysphoria patients can suffer from the a life time of frustration living with their original gender and the massive relief surgery can bring to some, allowing them to enjoy a healthy future as a member of the opposite sex.
As you will probably already know if you are reading this website, seeking help to live a fulfilled life in a new gender can be a long and often emotionally arduous journey. However, making the ultimate decision to permanently alter your external genitalia can only come after you have demonstrated your wish & ability to live in your chosen gender role for a significant time (typically 2-3 years) and after in-depth psychiatric evaluation to ensure this step is really the right and best step for you!
