We will only accept patients living within the following health boards:
Please note that there are other providers in Lothian, Grampian, Highland and Tayside which may be more suitable for your location. For more information and contact details for these clinics, please click here.
If there has been a change to your contact details, please ensure that you notify the service as due to the long wait since referrals, it is proving difficult to contact some patients when they reach the top of the list. We thank you for your continued patience.
We accept self-referrals and referrals from other service providers (e.g. your GP or a key support worker).
Adult Gender Service

Young People's Gender Service
If you are a young person below the age of 17, or the parent of a young person who wishes to register with the Young People's Gender Service, please email with the information below, using your child's details if you are a parent. There is no lower age limit to register with this service and we take referrals from all over Scotland.
All initial enquiries should be raised via email to our adult gender team or young people gender team and a member of the team will get back to you shortly.
Please provide us with your full name (or name you have registered with at the service) along with your date of birth and address. This will help us to deal with your enquiry more efficiently.
Our telephone lines are open from 8:30am - 11:30am Monday - Friday. Phone lines should be used for urgent matters, amending or cancelling current bookings only. You can contact the adult gender service on 0141 211 8137 and 0141 211 8618 for the young person's gender service. Any alternative reasons for contacting the gender team, we ask that you email.
If you do not inform us that you are not able to attend, you risk being removed from the list as there are many patients waiting for appointments.
Once you have received your appointment letter from the surgical team (for either pre-surgery assessments or surgical procedure), you can contact Sandyford on our generic email address for further details on how to claim back travel expenses.
We understand that some people waiting for our service may be struggling with their mental health. If you think you are at risk of seriously harming yourself, please speak to your GP who can help you get the right sort of support.
