The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne 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 17 years: Any child or adolescent up to the age of 17, 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 17 years and over: The RCH Gender Service see children and adolescents for a new assessment up to their 17th birthday. Adolescents who are 17 years or over may be eligible to access adult services: Monash Gender Dysphoria Clinic Once a referral has been received by the Gender Service you will be sent an appointment in the mail.

When an appointment for your assessment becomes available you will be contacted by an Administration Coordinator to confirm details – 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 treatment pathways will be offered.
