Gender Clinic

The Monash Health Gender Clinic is the specialist public health service for the Trans, Gender Diverse and Non-Binary community in Victoria.

The Gender Clinic is a state-wide service that provides individualised, person centred care for trans, gender diverse and non-binary people, their families, partners and the community. Our principal aim is to improve the health outcomes and wellbeing of all our consumers.  We accept all referrals for individuals who are aged 16 and above who reside in the state of Victoria. We also provide support, information and education for health care providers as well as community and advocacy groups. Our Consumer Advisory Panel is regularly involved in decision making about how to improve our services.

Important information

The Gender Clinic currently has a long wait list: in July 2024, we were booking appointments for clients whose referrals were received in June 2022. Additional clinical staff have been employed and we are seeing a gradual reduction in waiting times.

Whilst on the Gender Clinic wait list, you can be referred to the following services:

  • Monash Health Laser hair removal clinic (approximately two months wait time)
  • Latrobe University Voice clinic (24 months wait time).

We offer telehealth or in person appointments at the Pride Centre. Please advise the admin team if you would like to enter the building via a private side entrance, rather than the main front entrance.

Surgeons providing gender affirming surgeries have very long wait lists for new clients. Please contact them directly if you need further information. The Gender Clinic can provide financial assistance to clients who we have referred for surgery.

If you urgently need support, please see our resources pages for: TGDNB Peer Support; and Clinical Support.

Support can also be found at the following phone support services:

  • Switchboard Victoria run two phone contact lines, open every day:
  • Lifeline (Lifeline Australia 13 11 14) provide all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

Please note: we no longer accept referrals by fax, email or post. All referrals must now be forwarded by Secure eReferral by HealthLink.

Find up-to-date information about how to send a referral to Monash Health Specialist Consulting Clinics on the eReferrals page on our website.
