A new online guide for supporting trans patients in GP surgeries has been launched by NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
According to estimates, at least 2,760 trans people live in the city, with many more coming here to study and work.
The guide’s introduction follows a recent Parliamentary inquiry into Transgender Equality in the UK.
The CCG’s guide has been developed with input from local transgender people in Brighton and Hove and aims to help GPs and other clinical staff in General Practice support patients accessing NHS Specialist Gender Identity Services.
