Just as things were improving there’s another fly in the ointment for those waiting for appointments at the Chalmers Street Gender Identity Clinic in Edinburgh. 😦
This was posted in Facebook this week …
Hey, just thought I’d let folks know that my son phoned Chalmers Street last Friday to find out if there was any news about his first appointment. He was told that anyone referred from July /August time was on the list but wouldn’t hear anything until they have cover for the consultant who has gone on maternity leave.
Anyone wanting more information should maybe check this page on the Lothian NHS website.
If you are one of those waiting for your first appointment please don’t despair. You WILL get in eventually, and all the team there are absolutely marvelous. It’s not their fault that there are always staff shortages because more people don’t want to do that job.
Wow, is it nearly FIVE MONTHS since I posted ?!?! <slaps self>
That’s what happens when you have to be in boy mode so much of the time after moving house. 😦 Moving the bar and my store in SL took a lot of my time too, but both are so much improved now – the effort was well worth it. 🙂
Health could have been better. My best t-girl friend is now “living her dream” full time and everything is going wonderfully well for her. 🙂 Fife T-Time, (the group affectionately known as “Eric” and run by LGBT Health & Wellbeing), is taking off. Next week will see the inaugural Fife LGBT Gala, and I have my ticket ! YAY !
But, the purpose of this short post is to forewarn you all of an announcement I’ll be making later in the week about something rather important to all of us and for which I’ll be needing your help. (No more info for now, other than the music… I DO like a cliffhanger…)
Hope all of you are well, making progress, and keeping love in your heart.
This blog is about gender and all its intricacies... I will be blogging about latest research, reflections from my work with gender non-conforming and transgender clients, as well as information about resources.
