About us

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been commissioned by NHS England to provide lower masculinising gender affirmation surgery. At the Chelsea Centre for Gender Surgery hub we are passionate about helping patients alleviate their gender dysphoria.
We have worked with service specialists and the Transgender community to aim to deliver a high quality, patient centred service, with the aim of fully supporting patients through their surgical journey.
