My boyfriend has transitioned gender from female to male. He went to Leeds Gender Identity Clinic as this was the closest one. Despite initial long wait for appointment, they made him feel at ease and spoke to him frankly and succinctly but also sensitively.
Jo booked all his appointments and in the appointments I was present for she was friendly and professional.
He went to a private clinic for his assessment for testosterone due to waiting times but the NHS also had a valuable role and gave support when he needed it, providing advice about various matters including fertility.
My boyfriend has now had a bilateral mastectomy following a referral from the Gender Identity Clinic and is progressing well. He and I are very grateful for everything that has been done for him.
