Dr Stuart Lorimer

Consultant Psychiatrist

GMC no. 4037600

Dr Stuart Lorimer
I am a Consultant Psychiatrist and specialist gender clinician. I graduated from University of Aberdeen Medical School in 1993, with a Distinction in Psychiatry. After completing my general medical and surgical house jobs, I moved to Edinburgh for postgraduate training in Psychiatry, gaining both parts of my Membership of the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRCPsych) degree in 1998, including training in psychotherapy. I also developed research interests in stigma and LGBT issues.

In 2001, I moved to London to advance my training to Consultant level. In 2005, I obtained my Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) in both General Adult and Liaison Psychiatry. Having always enjoyed working alongside medical and surgical colleagues, I became curious about processes of gender transition as managed within the NHS. I approached the West London Mental Health Trust Gender Identity Clinic (WLMHT GIC), then based at Charing Cross Hospital, and began working there in 2002. Initially locum, I was made a permanent Consultant in 2007.

I am particularly interested in engagement with the wider trans and gender variant community, and have represented WLMHT GIC in a number of arenas, including the Department of Health Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity Advisory Group (SOGIAG) and the Parliamentary Forum on Gender Variance.

I have presented at events hosted by the Greater London Authority, the Gay & Lesbian Association of Doctors & Dentists, Equality Ireland, the LGBT Health Summit, TG10, Trans London, Spectrum London, FTM London and The Gender Trust.

I am a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH).

I am listed by the Gender Recognition Panel as a specialist approved to provide GRC reports.

In 2009, I was interviewed by equality and diversity specialist and campaigner Christine Burns, for her Just Plain Sense podcast series:
