Gender Reassignment

For most people, their gender identity is matched comfortably with the gender prescribed to them at birth.  However, for some of our patients their gender is not the right match and they find greater comfort and connection to another gender.

Our patients who live within the transsexual community are protected under the section gender reassignment of the Equality Act.
