When your name gets to the top of the waiting list, an opt-in letter will be sent to you asking you to contact us by email or by telephone to make an appointment. If you do not contact us within four weeks we will assume that you no longer need our service and you will be discharged.

Referrals from other NHS gender services are considered as transfers of care and treated slightly differently. People referred in this way may be offered an appointment rather than an opt-in letter.

When you have accepted an appointment at our centre, you will be sent detailed information, including what to bring with you.

There is a high demand for appointments, so please let us know as soon as possible if you can't make your appointment or need to change it by:

Emailing us at

Or calling 0115 876 0160.

Please be aware that when we are sending out letters to ask people to contact us for an appointment, we do so in small batches, and in order of when the referral was received.

Once you have been seen, please allow up to four weeks for letters following appointments, and for feedback on blood results. In order to avoid delays, please bring copies of your blood results to your appointments.
