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, consumer centred care for the trans, gender diverse and non-binary people, their families and partners. Our principle aim is to improve the health outcomes and wellbeing of all our consumers.  We accept all referrals for individuals who are aged 17 and above and reside in the state of Victoria. We also provide support and information 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

Updated 30 July 2020

In 2019 the Department of Health and Human Services undertook a review of current Gender Services in Victoria to identify future statewide models. This review recommended Gender Clinic move away from Mental Health to the Specialist Clinic area. We are pleased to announce that the Gender Clinic will commence operating as a Specialist Clinic commencing August 2020. This comes with many changes including how consumers access this service, starting on 3rd August, referrals from a health practitioner will now go through a centralised intake process page: https://monashhealth.org/health-professionals/referrals/ . Their contact details are: Phone 1300 342 273; Fax (03) 9594 2273. There will no longer be a need for the General Information Form (GIF) only a GP referral using the provided format.
