Sandyford offers a comprehensive gender identity service available to anyone who is concerned about their gender identity or expression of their gender.

A hard copy of the booklet is also available free from Sandyford.

There is also a specialised Young People’s Gender Clinic you can call on 0141 211 8618.

It is a leaflet with information about NHS services in Scotland for young people who are experiencing distress and / or uncertainty about their gender identity. You can also pick up a free hard copy from Sandyford.

The service primarily assists people who are transgender to facilitate medical and surgical treatments enabling greater comfort in the face of gender non-conformity.

However, the service is also available to any person who feels uncomfortable or uncertain about their gender identity whether they wish to change their gender or not.
