    Gender Clinic

    Gender dysphoria is a condition whereby a person feels a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity. This can often cause great distress to the individual, many of whom report feeling ‘trapped’ in the wrong body.

    Gender dysphoria can be a difficult condition to face, not just for the sufferer, but for their friends and family who may have questions. However, YourGP provides extensive help and support to all affected, and is proud to have treated many people with the condition, enabling them to become happier and more confident in who they are.

    Here at YourGP, we see everyone as an individual, therefore the treatment we provide for gender dysphoria can take a variety of forms. Everyone, however, can benefit from the following:

    • A relaxed, fully confidential, environment
    • Short-notice appointments at a time to suit you
    • A friendly, non-judgemental and supportive atmosphere
    • Space and time to help you understand what you are going through

    Meet the team

    Leading the Gender Clinic is Dr Chin Chong, who is an active member of the British Association of Gender Identity Specialists (BAGIS). The aim of the BAGIS is to promote clinical research and exchange of knowledge of gender dysphoria and transgender health. Dr Chong has provided treatment and support for a number of transgender patients at various points in their transition – from initial assessments, right through to hormone therapy and beyond.

    Dr Mike Shaw is an experienced psychiatrist specialising in gender dysphoria (transgender). Dr Shaw works alongside Dr Chong, supporting and guiding transgender clients through their reassignment journey.

    How it works

    • If you are aged 17 or over and you’d like to discuss any issues of gender dysphoria, email to book an appointment at a time that suits you (please note, hormones/hormone blockers cannot be prescribed until the age of 18).
    • We will invite you in for an initial meeting at the YourGP Gender Clinic where we will assess your case and explain our recommended approach in detail.
    • The course of action will be specifically tailored to your needs – potential programmes could include hormone implants and prescriptions for example, but please note that hormones will not be prescribed at your first appointment.
    • We are also happy to work with friends and family to help them understand your gender identity and the process you are going through.

    I was directed to YourGP by my health insurance when traveling on Scotland. I was with intense pain on my feet and had an appointment with Dr Doogan, and what an incredible doctor she is!

    She explained everything with the most detail and patience possible, listened even with more patience and care, it’s so rare nowadays seeing passionate doctors for their jobs like Dr Doogan.
