Your appointment

We offer face-to-face appointments.

How to get an appointment

You can be referred to us by your GP or specialist doctor.

Changing or cancelling your appointment

To change or cancel your appointment, please email [email protected].

If you do not attend your appointment, we'll contact you to find out why or offer another appointment.

 If you do not attend your appointment for a second time, we'll discharge you back to doctor who referred you.

Before your appointment

Please wear comfortable clothing as you may need to have an ultrasound of the scrotum (ball sack). You may also have blood tests.

Adults may be asked to produce a semen sample. We recommend you do not have sex for at least 48 hours before your appointment.

Please bring any clinical letters about your condition, including:

  • blood test results
  • semen analysis
  • genetics tests

During your appointment

Our one-stop clinic covers all aspects of Klinefelter syndrome. You'll be able to talk about your condition with specialists in:

  • genetics
  • endocrinology
  • urology
  • reproductive medicine
  • psychology
  • plastic surgery

A nurse counsellor is available to help with any other personal concerns you may have.

Please arrive at 9am and allow around 2 hours for your appointment. This includes tests and consultations. You'll see different specialists and may have several tests including blood and urine tests.

When you arrive, we'll give you a patient information pack with details of Klinefelter syndrome resources.

We're a teaching hospital. Students may be present during your appointment. A member of the Klinefelter Syndrome Association (KSA) may also be present to give a personal view on living with Klinefelter syndrome. If you do not want to be seen by students or KSA members, please tell the doctor or nurse in charge. It won't affect your care in any way. 

After your appointment

After your appointment, we'll write to your GP and the doctor who referred you. We'll send you a copy of this letter. The letter will include a personal management plan for your condition.

We'll help you arrange any follow-up appointments needed and let your GP know if they need to refer you for care near where you live.
