The Cheshire and Merseyside Adult Gender Identity Collaborative (CMAGIC)

Who we are

The Cheshire and Merseyside Adult Gender Identity Collaborative (CMAGIC) is a partnership of clinicians, commissioners, providers and service users involved in the support and care of transgender and non binary individuals within Cheshire and Merseyside

CMAGIC is one of three gender dysphoria services newly located within the primary care and sexual health setting. The service is commissioned by NHS England, with other networked pilot provision being in Greater Manchester and London.

CMAGIC is supporting the delivery of a new specialist gender identity clinic available to individuals living in Liverpool, South Sefton, Halton, Knowsley, Southport and Formby, St Helens, Cheshire, Vale Royal, Warrington and Wirral.

Individuals eligible for this service are:

  • Aged 17+ and registered with a GP in England
  • On a waiting list for an established NHS gender incongruence service and have not yet attended their first appointment.

Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded the contract to deliver this pilot service for two years. The service will become operational early next year and aims to improve provision for transgender and non binary patients (TGNB) across Cheshire and Merseyside. 

The service will work to the following national service specifications https://www.england.nhs.uk/commissioning/spec-services/npc-crg/gender-dysphoria-clinical-programme/
