The Bridge Clinic

A new primary care clinic has opened for the trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming community.

We provide routine GP services and can offer some gender-affirming care, such as bridging hormones. We also have a health and wellbeing coach working as part of the team. It will run a monthly clinic in South Southwark.

Patients can self-refer by emailing ih.bridgeatsouthwark@nhs.net.

Lower Limbs Clinic

Partnership Southwark brought together local partners to develop the new service to improve outcomes for patients and streamline the pathway. 

We have commenced the delivery of lower limbs clinics (also known as leg ulcer clinics).

Lower limbs clinics run at Tessa Jowell Health Centre every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 9am to 4:30pm with a 30-minute appointment slot.

Input from staff and patients was central to the project, and early results are encouraging with improved healing rates and positive reports of patient experiences in the new environment. For more information about the new clinic and to view the Partnership Southwark video where Clinical Director Brenda Donnelly and GPN trainee Geraldine Ekechi discuss the clinic

GSTT Tissue Viability Nurses run the sessions alongside General Practice Nurses. Please speak to your GP for a referral to this service.
