Dr Leighton J Seal

PhD FRCP
Consultant Endocrinologist

GMC no. 3663491

Dr Leighton J Seal
I trained at St Bartholomew’s hospital where I qualified in 1992 having gained a BSc in Chemical Pathology and Clinic Chemistry during my undergraduate studies. I left medical school with Honours in all subjects and gained a University of London Prize, The Betuel Prize for Medicine.

My post graduate training was at the Royal Post Graduate Medical College at Hammersmith Hospital and Imperial College London. I was awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Training Fellowship and studied the brain’s control of reproduction but also food intake and obesity.

I am a Consultant Endocrinologist at the Gender Identity Clinic in West London Mental Health Trust (situated at Charing Cross Hospital) where I am responsible for the diagnosis of endocrine disorders in those attending the clinic, as well as supervision of the cross gender hormone replacement of both pre operative and post operative clients. This is a national referral service for patients with gender disorders, currently seeing over 3000 patients per year, both trans men and trans women.

I am a Consultant and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Endocrinology and Diabetes at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, where I run a dedicated Andrology clinic to treat erectile dysfunction and the associated metabolic disturbances in the diabetic population, as well general Endocrinology services.

My research interest is in the role endocrine abnormalities play in the development of disorders of gender identity.

Professional Memberships:

Recognised as a Gender Specialist by the Gender Recognition Panel.
