Two weeks ago I got my doctor to refer me to a GIC. Although I'm still questioning I know there is a long waiting list (2 years) and I wanted to get the ball rolling. I have been under the impression that I need this appointment to see if I can/want to transition and if so to be able to get onto HRT. However one person I know on twitter has just got her appointment but she is already on HRT I believe. My question is. Do I have to wait until I see the GIC before I can go on HRT or am I wrong?
