How the service works

We provide a tailored plan that includes one-on-one appointments, groups and workshops, remote support and content for you to review at home.
At your first visit, you’ll meet with our Specialist Health Adviser or a member of the senior nursing team. We’ll discuss your experience of gender, your hopes and ambitions, your relationships, and your wider health and wellbeing.
Register and log-in to get access to an online library of trans/non-binary specific multi-media resources, tailored to your needs.
Let us know what sort of support and information you want and tailor it to your own health and wellbeing goals. Choose from a library of specialist information exploring topics such as fitness and nutrition, hormone therapy, and giving up or cutting down smoking.
You’ll meet with your Lead Clinician. What happens next depends on your life goals and needs. Some will explore physical interventions (e.g. hormones or surgery), whilst others might want services like Speech and Language, Psychosexual Therapy, or access to workshops to boost and maintain self-esteem.

Who is transplus for?

Individuals eligible for the TransPlus service are:

Those who:

  • are 17+, eligible for NHS care and registered with a GP in England;


  • have registered with 56 Dean Street & Dean Street Express or our sister services: 10 Hammersmith Broadway or John Hunter Clinic before 31st March 2022;


  • You were referred to an established NHS gender dysphoria service prior to 31st March 2022 but are yet to have attended their first appointment.

We are prioritising first appointments for those who have been on the waiting list of an established NHS gender dysphoria service for the longest time. If you have recently become eligible, we will contact you when we are ready to discuss the next steps.

Please feel free to email us here chelwest.transplusinfo@nhs.net if you would like to confirm that you are eligible for our service. Please make sure to include your name, date of birth, and the phone number that you are registered under.

Please note, as a small-scale, time-limited pilot we regret we cannot accept transfers of care from people who have already had their first appointment at another NHS Gender Dysphoria Service.

Here to support you

We are a service with trans/non-binary people at its core. Many of us are members of the community ourselves or are individuals with significant professional or personal experience of supporting trans/non-binary people.

You will get easy access to your clinical team, with lots of opportunities to ask questions about your ongoing care (e.g. recent blood results, or any new or additional support needs that might arise).

We have a range of flexible support options: we can offer a listening ear, peer support, talking therapies, and provide one-to-one advice, as well as access to a range of online and face-to-face tools, support groups, workshops and events.

Our team can also link you to other 56 Dean Street services or help you access community organisations (including, housing and homelessness, domestic or sexual abuse, hate crime, drugs & alcohol, and support for older people).
