Trans Health Hub

This service is supported by The Clare Project

The Trans Health Hub are aware of the healthcare inequalities faced by our TNBI patients. We are working in partnership with The Clare Project to learn how we can improve your experience of and access to healthcare. The Clare Project is a Brighton-based charity providing support services for people questioning their gender identity, as well as training, campaigning and consulting on TNBI inclusion. 

On this page you will find some downloadable PDFs on sex & gender diversity, medical transitioning, and self-care, as well as links to support organizations. We have provided information on NHS waiting times and cancer screening too. 

We are committed to accessibility and inclusion but we also know we may not always get things right. 

If there is anything you think we can improve or change to make accessing our services easier for you, please tell us. We will always welcome your feedback to help us do better.

Brighton Health and Wellbeing Centre support the use of the Trans Health Hub to enable patients to further understand their rights regarding equal access to health care.
