BMA Medical Book Awards Finalist

The number of people coming out as transgender continues to rise, and this book shows healthcare and medical practitioners how to deliver excellent primary and secondary care to gender diverse patients.

This guide provides accessible and practical advice on tailoring the social and ethical aspects of practice to the needs of each individual. Beyond setting out how clinical procedures should work for gender reassignment, it explains how to use language and pronouns in a respectful way, provides information on transgender services and resources, and offers insights into the challenges commonly faced by transgender people in both medical and social contexts. Based on cutting edge research and the lived experience of the author as a non-binary person, this is essential reading for all those working to meet the needs of transgender people in healthcare settings.


'At last, a book that fulfills the very real need among medical practitioners, faced with growing numbers of transgender or non-binary service users in everyday practice. This is a very comprehensive volume, packed with up-to-date advice from a clinical expert. A must-have on every shelf.'
- Christine Burns MBE, author and transgender activist

'I can't think of anyone, working in any aspect of general healthcare, who wouldn't be likely to provide much better care to trans people as a result of reading this book.'
- Dr James Barrett, Lead Clinician of the Charing Cross Gender Identity Clinic

'Dr Vincent's book, 'Transgender health', is comprehensive and thorough in its scope and detail; historically and philosophically well grounded, giving much food for thought, yet it is also direct and practical. Dr Vincent brings their characteristic scholastic integrity to this excellent book. On behalf of GIRES, Bernard and Terry Reed recommend it to professional as well as lay readers.'
- Terry Reed OBE and Bernard Reed OBE, founders of the trans charity GIRES

'One of the best and easiest to read medical texts I've found. It's very informative and answered many questions that I had...The text is broken into easy-to-read chunks and well-referenced and includes a nice personal touch at the end.'
