Kingston Community Health Centres (KCHC) is proud to be the site of the Transgender Health Program for the South East region of Ontario. This program assumes the referral process and coordination of care for patients seeking gender affirming medical care, and is staffed by a full-time Nurse Practitioner and a full-time Social Worker.
Services offered include:
- Therapeutic management
- Hormone therapy
- Surgical planning visits
- Community resource navigation
- Social transition support
The KCHC Transgender Program provides inclusive medical care and support to help patients identify and achieve their transition goals. At this time, the program scope is limited to transgender issues; we do not manage patients’ ongoing primary care concerns.
Self-referrals are welcome.
The KCHC Transgender Program can also provide education services to primary care practices who work with transgender clients.
(September 2022: Current estimated wait time is 8-12 months.)
If you are looking for support immediately or while you are on our waitlist, we have compiled a list of virtual and community resources. This list includes help lines, peer support groups, and educational resources available online or within the South East region.
