Dr Sarah Kennedy is an experienced psychiatrist specialising in gender dysphoria (transgender) and liaison psychiatry.
Born and raised in Edinburgh, Dr Kennedy trained at Dundee University. In 2000, she returned to south east Scotland to undertake her psychiatry training. Since then, she has worked in a wide variety of mental health services across Lothian and the Scottish Borders.
Having worked in geriatric and community psychiatry, Dr Kennedy realised her passion lay with gender dysphoria, a condition whereby the person feels trapped within the wrong body, outwardly showing the world their wrong gender.
At YourGP, Dr Kennedy works alongside UK recognised gender specialist Dr Lyndsey Myskow, an acknowledged authority within the field, supporting and guiding transgender clients through their reassignment journey.
In addition, Dr Kennedy specialises in liaison psychiatry, a rapidly expanding psychiatry. Liaison psychiatry, also known as psychological medicine or consultative psychiatry specialises in the interface between medicine and psychiatry. The role of Dr Kennedy is to see the patients with one or more medical conditions involving a mental health concern at the request of the treating medical or surgical team or GP.Back to all staff
