When a gap in care was identified for transgender individuals, Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT) stepped up to the plate by creating the Trans Care Clinic. This services that was generously funded through the Canada 150th grant and a kind donation from the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation provides patients with the services and support they require.
“We are incredibly happy to be able to help those in our community who have struggled in finding and accessing a specific type of care. We are committed to delivering high-quality care to patients and to be a leader in the development of a holistic health care system, which is evident through the programs and services we offer to our patients.” – Lori Richey, Executive Director of PFHT
The Trans Care Clinic is operated by nurse practitioners, mental health clinicians, pharmacists, and collaborating physicians. Patients are able to access services every Tuesday at the PFHT office.
The services provided by the clinic are individualized for each and every patient based on both their needs and wants. Some services include:
- Counseling support
- Medical treatment initiation
- Hormone monitoring
- Additional individualized services and supports (i.e. surgery consultations)
