Private route for hormone treatment
There is also an option out there to go privately for hormone treatment before being seen at a Gender Identity Clinic, as I know the wait times can be very long before an appointment comes through.
Is run by qualified practitioners experienced in the gender field and are based in London.
Dr Lorimer – one of the UK’s foremost clinical specialists in the diagnosis and management of gender dysphoria.
Christella Antoni – She has extensive experience with voice and speech issues, enabling individuals to integrate socially in their preferred gender.
Dr Seal – Endocrinologist, an expert clinician in the hormones of sex and gender.
Initial assessment with Dr Lorimer (60 minutes)…….£200.00
General follow-up assessments (30 minutes)…………..£130.00
Initial assessment with Dr Seal (60 minutes)…………..£220.00
General follow-up assessments………………………………£170.00
You can either fill out the online enquiry form or ring them, they will ask you to make an appointment with both Dr Lorimer and Dr Seal. Dr Lorimer will do a general assessment asking you for a history of your gender dysphoria, if you find it easier you can also write your feelings down and take that with you. You will then be seen by Dr Seal who will go over what you have discussed with Dr Lorimer, check your health and depending on the outcome, offer you hormone treatment. If you can try and get your bloods done before you have the appointment with Dr Seal.
