GIC screening appointment

I had my screening appointment for the Leeds gender clinic this morning.  It was a telephone chat with one of the outreach workers and was a lot more in depth than I’d anticipated.  It consisted of a review of my transition progress and my medical history as well as a chat about the care pathway through the clinic and anticipated waiting times.

He seemed satisfied with the steps I’d taken so far. The current waiting times to first appointment is approx. 18 months with approx. 8-10 months between appointments.  I’m so grateful to be able to initiate hormone therapy through a private clinic because it seems to be a minimum of 3 years through the NHS at the moment.
