Unfortunately, Charing Cross Hospital is no longer able to offer feminising gender affirmation surgery as we will have no specialist surgeons with the required skills after 1 October 2021. We are working in partnership with other NHS services to ensure continued care and support for all patients affected. 

We have contacted all patients on our waiting list to explain the situation and provide advice and support. Anyone who already had a date for surgery has been treated here and all remaining patients are being transferred to an alternative, established provider in London. We do not anticipate this will cause any significant delay to their treatment.

Your inpatient stay Your stay in hospital

You may need to stay at one of our hospitals to have a procedure or receive treatment, either overnight as an inpatient or during the day as a day patient. Ahead of your inpatient stay, you will usually need to attend a pre-operative assessment appointment.
