The following is a plea for those who are under the care of an understanding and compassionate doctor/GP. I am running a survey on doctors in the UK who are transgender friendly and I need you to take part in a small survey.
Coming out and leading up to transition can arguably be the most stressful thing than any person ever does (the surgery itself was, for me at least, one of the least stressful) and so it is important to have the details of a good GP who you know will be sympathetic to the stresses that you will experience.
Having a national database of trans friendly GP’s can save lives. The survey will take around 3-5 minutes of your time and could save somebody’s life – now that is 3 to 5 mins well spent, wouldn’t you agree?
The survey can be found here (link has been de-activated as we now use direct imput from our website – please see note at the foot pf this post.
If you have had a terrible experience at the hands of a GP, then you can also report it on the survey – but please be sure to only state any facts and not conjecture or supposition.
If you are needing to find a good GP then the results of the survey are updated daily (at the moment) and you can download the PDF from here. This register is searchable (so you can search on a postcode – for example TQ1 or PO4). You have to download the PDF, save it to your hard drive and then open it up in Adobe Acrobat Reader to be able to access the search function though).
This manner of creating the register has now been superceded by an online register which you can both contribute to and also gain information from. The register can be found at https://transfigurations.org.uk/trans-friendly-doctors/
