Title: The transgender patient in primary care: practical advice for a ten minute consultation

Abstract: With referrals to gender identity clinics rising rapidly, GPs are more likely to meet patients who are transgender or diagnosed with gender dysphoria [1]. Teaching on transgender medicine is lacking in both undergraduate and postgraduate curricula, leading to a perceived lack of expertise within this area. Furthermore, General Medical Council (GMC) guidelines on the GP’s role in prescribing are vague, resulting in some controversy. As waiting lists for appointments at specialist clinics are often at least 18 months, primary care physicians will be increasingly involved in the initiation of the transition process.
