Re: Dr Jonathan hayes

Dear Gender Centre Community,

 Many of you have heard about, or been directly affected by the recent announcement by Dr Jonathan Hayes that he has stopped seeing all clients at his St Leonards endocrinology practice. The Gender Centre understands that it is likely that Dr Hayes may not return to practice in the near future and that patients of Dr Hayes should consider alternative care at least for the forcible future. 

 If you require support with finding an ENDOCRINOLOGIST, please contact us on 9519 7599.

We have an extensive list of practitioners, and will discuss your unique situation in order to offer the most appropriate suggestions.”
