Drs Lisa and Sara talk to Dr Luke Wookey, Dr Joanna Bircher and Ava Bircher for an introduction to Trans and Non-Binary Health in General Practice.
We start with all important definitions, which leads us to talking about coding, healthcare records and a discussion about screening and health inequalities. We talk about how our practices and consultations can be welcoming, before considering Hormone Replacement Therapy and NHS funded surgical options which are potential options for people accessing Gender Clinics. We move onto health issues that disproportionately affect Trans and Non-Binary people, and discuss important resources for clinicians and patients. A lot more could be said but we hope you will find this a useful resource for the whole Primary Care Team to access.
