Trans or Gender Questioning Young People – A Primary Care Consultation

16 May 2024
GP Programme 1

There has been a rise in young people, presenting to general practice gender questioning or as a trans-person. In a paper published in June 2019, The RCGP recognised that GPs are not experienced in treating and managing patients with gender dysphoria and trans health issues, nor is it part of the GP curriculum or GP specialty training. This, alongside significant problems with referral pathways leads to a lack of confidence in how to approach consultations especially with young people. The session aims to address some of these issues.
