Tavistock and Portman awarded Charing Cross Adult Gender Clinic contract

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust will act as interim providers for the Charing Cross Adult Gender Identity Clinic in 2017/18.

Earlier this year the current provider, West London Mental Health Trust, served notice on their contract to NHS England on the basis that patients requiring gender identity services would be better served in the long term by another provider.

Paul Jenkins, CEO at Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust said:

“Our focus is on taking over the service with minimum disruption, combining our expertise with the knowledge and skill of the current Adult Gender Clinic staff. We’re heartened by the positivity and openness of the team and we look forward to working together to provide the best possible outcomes for service users.”
