Honest, open and non-judgemental

The cliniQ service is offering trans and non-binary people health care with dignity, writes Elaine Cole

Trans* people often receive poor care from general and specialist health services, with many reporting negative experiences at gender identity clinics. CliniQ in London’s Soho area is run by trans* people and the clinic’s healthcare team to ensure an inclusive, non-judgemental service. All nurses who come into contact with trans* people should ensure they are trans* aware – which includes taking great care with the use of pronouns.
