NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit (AGCSU) is one of the largest commissioning support units in the country and works with local and national NHS bodies to help deliver health services.
AGCSU has been commissioned by NHS England (NHSE) to provide a seamless service between the NHS Gender Identity Clinics and the NHS Surgical Providers (hospitals), to process referrals for specialised gender surgery for people over the age of 17 in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This service is known as the GDNRSS. NHS Gender Dysphoria National Referral Support Service (GDNRSS).
If you and your clinician decide that a referral for surgery would be appropriate for you, your referral will be handled by the GNDRSS.
The GDNRSS also runs a support line to talk about aspects of your surgery if you need further advice or support:
Tel: 01522 857799 Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm
If you do opt for surgery, and it is considered appropriate by your gender specialist clinicians, then it will be undertaken by surgeons commissioned by NHS England in line with the national service specification.
