Dr Webberley,

A geneticist friend of mine is working at the Crick institute and is looking at the genetic causes of the development of biological sex and how that can lead individuals to develop intersex characteristics or develop a gender identity distinct from their assigned gender based on sexual characteristics.

Anyhow, my question is, what reassurances can you give people, such as myself, who are uncomfortable with the idea of private healthcare, but otherwise face the obstacles placed by the NHS systems? I can't help but feel uncomfortable, especially being a person whose mental health problems have led to me having low incomes jobs despite postgrad education. For what it's worth even the reduced rates offered by GenderGP leave a lot of people in my income bracket without too many options. I do of course appreciate that you need to make a living and pay your staff. I am considering GenderGP as an option.

Secondly, any advice on dealing with a health board run GP surgery? I have no permanent GP anymore, and so far only one GP I have seen regarding issues has been at all helpful, but he's only there two days a week and most of the time I try to get an appointment with him he's either booked up or not taking patients (the surgery only accepts on the day bookings, so I can't plan it to fit in with work etc.).

Thanks for taking the time to do this. And I hope I didn't come across as rude or unpleasant.
