The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust will act as interim providers for the Charing Cross Adult Gender Identity Clinic in 2017/18. This is an exciting development for the Trust which has taken up the opportunity to bring its expertise in this area to bear and develop a close partnership between children & young adult and adult services.
