The Nottingham Centre for Transgender Health Network (NCTH) launched a new national pilot in June 2021 for people who live in the East of England.
This new service has been developed that is nurse and GP lead and based in two locations in the East of England. One base is in Cambridge and the second, yet to be identified, will be in Norfolk. The service will see patients who have been waiting on other gender clinics waiting lists on a 'who has been waiting the longest' basis.
The pilot is now a well established part of the NCTH network and patients have the same access to support and treatment as they do with a gender identity clinic (see links below). The Nottingham Centre provides the training, clinical governance, and additional support elements of a patient’s pathway. In this regard, East of England is considered 'part of' the Nottingham team and there is a lot of regular contact between the two locations.
The East of England Gender Service has a large geographical area and the use of video consultation, when clinically appropriate, will help reduce the need for patients to travel. However, if you prefer to be ssen in person, you can choose that method instead.
The treatments that are offered at the East of England Gender Service can be found in the patients section of this website. Here, you can find out about hormone treatments as well as surgical options.
The prescribing guides for hormone treatment can be found on our prescribing guides secion.
