Gender identity clinic (GIC)

The Gender Identity Clinic (GIC) is the largest and oldest gender clinic in the UK, dating back to 1966. We accept referrals from all over the UK for people with issues related to gender.

We are a multi-disciplinary administrative and clinical team, including psychologists, psychiatrists, endocrinologists and speech and language therapists. We work together in order to provide holistic gender care, focusing on the biological/medical, psychological and social aspects of gender.

The clinic is sometimes referred to as the Charing Cross (CX) Gender Identity Clinic due to its proximity to the acute hospital, but we are actually based in a standalone clinic just off Fulham Palace Road.
