The Royal Children’s Hospital Gender Service


The Gender Service is a Victorian statewide service. Unfortunately the Service is unable to accept referrals from interstate. Note: RCH Gender Service is not a crisis service.

Referral pathways: Children and adolescents up to 16 years: Any child or adolescent up to the age of 16, who resides in Victoria, with concerns regarding gender diversity or gender dysphoria can be referred by a General Medical Practitioner (GP) to the Gender Service for assessment and support with ongoing treatment and care.

Adolescents 16 years and over: The RCH Gender Service see children and adolescents for a new assessment up to their 16th birthday.

A letter will be sent out prior to your appointment. There is currently a long wait list to access the service.

Families who access the Royal Children’s Hospital Gender Service with their child or adolescent will be provided with a family centred approach to care. This will entail a multidisciplinary assessment of their child or adolescent regarding gender diversity or gender dysphoria. As an outcome of the assessment, support and medical pathways will be offered.

We are registered as: Charity.
