This is a private service, which means that you have to pay for some of your care, however if you are financially struggling then we try and do all we can to make things affordable for you
If your GP is willing to help then the NHS pays for some aspects and reduces the costs for you. I can give your GP lots of information about their expectations in helping you with gender care so that they can feel more informed and more able to help.
Please ask about your individualised care package.
All of my initial advice is free. Please ask me any questions about your gender, your healthcare options, how to get help from your GP, how to get referred to an NHS GIC.
I can offer advice on any aspects of transitioning and your healthcare and needs. Feel free to contact me today.
One-off administration fee – varies
This is an individualised fee which depends on individual circumstances and also your financial ability. We don’t want anyone not to be able to access care because of affordability, and if your GP is willing to help then this makes private care much more affordable.
Assessments, Support, Advice – £50+
We advise all people to undergo one or more counselling / support sessions with one of our counsellors or psychotherapists.
This can be a one-off or more depending on individual need. You may provide a report of your own if that is preferable.
The costs depends on how many sessions you need or want.
Clinic, Video, Telephone – varies
All treatment plans are individualised according to need and circumstances.
If you need an appointment then I have a clinic in Abergavenny, Wales, or under some circumstances I offer consultations via video (FaceTime or Skype) or telephone.
Initial screening and ongoing monitoring – varies (free if your GP does them)
If your GP agrees to do your blood tests then there will be no further costs for this. Otherwise, my private laboratory can organise these through blood samples or finger prick tests. The price varies with how many and how often you need tests – please ask for a typical regime for your situation.
Costs of hormones and blockers – £20+ or free if your GP prescribes
If your GP is willing to enter a shared care agreement then the NHS will pay for your prescription medication for you under my supervision. If not, then you have to pay for the actual costs of the drugs, and this varies as to which medication you are prescribed.
Advice, prescriptions, letters, GP supervision – £30
I charge a small monthly fee which gives you unlimited access to my advice regarding your gender care, and also covers the costs of me advising your GP on shared care agreement plans. This fee is individualised and I do not want anyone to not be able to afford my care just because of finances alone.
Once your GP is happy to fully take over your care then you will no longer need to pay this.
If you are self-medicating you can swap your medication for safe and prescribed medication from me. I can advise on your dosage, arrange blood tests and you will find it cheaper and safer. I have compared my partner pharmacy (ClearChemist) with the commonly used websites that sell prescription medication without a prescription.
These are indicative prices only and do not include postage packing and prescription fees for any of the sites I have quoted. Dr Webberley
