Gender reassignment is a specialist area of medicine, says RCGP

Dr Jonathan Leach, honorary secretary of the Royal College of GPs, has made a statement on care of trans patients in general practice.

It points out that some aspects of the treatment of trans people will fall under the heading of specialist medicine and may require referral into specialist services. Dr Leach also notes the lack of high-quality research and good clinical guidance for GPs treating trans patients.
