Managing patients with gender dysphoria

The current situation, both nationally and locally, of services available for gender dysphoria patients is sadly lacking. This is putting these patients, and their GPs, in very difficult situations of trying to manage their care and prescribing without an adequate service in place. Kent LMC are trying hard to get the CCG to commission a proper service for these patients, similar to that put in place in Sussex. In the meantime the following links give the current advice on management and responsibilities.
