The Northamptonshire Gender Service based at Danetre Hospital, Daventry is a service for people who experience persistent confusion and/or discomfort with their gender. This includes people who want to change physical aspects of their gender as well as those who do not.

The service is available to people who live in England. Some people who are distressed about their gender, have other health problems such as physical disabilities or mental health difficulties. The service is open to all, but people with more complex needs may require additional support from other services.

The Northamptonshire Gender Service offers psychiatric and psychological assessment, support, counselling and speech and language therapy to people within the service, depending on their needs.

Our service provides advice to other professionals, including advice on medical treatments.

Please see our waiting times data for your information. This data will be updated on a regular basis.

It is important for us to hear from our clients about the service they have received so we can continually improve the service we provide. A feedback form (code 0089) is available for your comments or any suggestions for improvement.
