About The Middlesex Centre

The conditions described above are complex and require the experience of specialists in different fields. Thus people with intersex and other related conditions often need to see many different hospital specialists. We have brought together the different specialists, who you may need, into one clinic. This provides you with the best care delivered by a multi-disciplinary team on one location which makes it more convenient for patients.

The clinicians are expert in their field and make full use of the latest advances and research in these areas. The clinic is a consultant led service. This means you will usually see the consultant that you have been referred to.

As this is a specialised centre, we have trained doctors from UK and abroad attending our clinic for observation. If you do not wish anyone else to be present in your consultation, please let us know. Your care will not be affected in any way. Your privacy and well-being will be respected at all times so it is your choice as to whether or not you wish a junior doctor or other clinician to be present at your appointment.

You may be seen by one or more members of the team depending on your clinical needs and for that reason, please allow sufficient time especially on your first visit to the clinic.

We believe that knowledge, information and support are important for your physical health and psychological well being. There are information sheets about your condition and you may wish to meet others with similar conditions. We also run open afternoons which many people with a particular condition are invited to attend.

These occasions are useful for discussing new advances, new treatments and research findings relating to your condition, and expert clinicians will be there to answer your queries.

Psychological Support - Many patients may not be sure what clinical psychology is and how it could help them. This is some information to help you know what clincial psychology is all about.

Support groups - There are patient groups that offer support and information. This can be an excellent way to meet people who understand your condition. Individuals with intersex and related conditions, and/or their parents may wish to contact one of these groups.
