Update to Progesterone Guidelines - 30 January 2023 (for GPs)

Due to increased requests from our services users we have updated our guidelines for Progesterone prescription. Visit our information page for GPs, to access these guidelines.

The Sheffield Gender Identity Clinic, also known as the Porterbrook Clinic, is a service for adults who are experiencing gender dysphoria.

Our clinic is one of seven gender identity clinics providing healthcare for adults in England. We are commissioned by NHS England. 

We are proud to provide specialist healthcare to transgender and non-binary people. We are passionate about providing culturally competent, developmentally appropriate and trans-affirmative professional care and management to the people that seek our services. 

Our team is made up of administration staff, medical and nursing staff, and a range of other healthcare professionals, such as psychologists and speech and language therapists.

People who attend our service may be seeking a range of treatment options. We provide support for social transitioning and medical treatment to decrease gender identity distress.
