New Gender Affirming Doctor List for NSW
ACON, the main LGBTIQ+ health organisation for NSW, has recently published the state's first Gender Affirming Doctor List for trans and/or gender diverse people seeking access to gender affirming hormonal care.
The list includes both:
doctors who start gender affirming hormones without requiring additional referral (informed consent model)
doctors who start gender affirming hormones with an approval letter from an Endocrinologist and/or mental health provider (not informed consent).
The list will grow over time and currently includes two doctors in the Illawarra Shoalhaven. Doctors can apply to be included in the list here: www.acon.org.au/TGDdoctorlist
