Are you a trans man or woman and unsure of which screening programmes you are eligible for?
No matter which, if any, gender you identify with, it’s important that you’re aware of which screening services you’re eligible for.
The information below is for trans (transgender) and non-binary people in Scotland; it will tell you about the adult screening programmes that are available in Scotland and will explain who we invite for screening.
All NHS screening programmes in Scotland identify people who are eligible for screening through their CHI number.
What’s a CHI number?
Your Community Health Index (CHI) number:
- is a record of your date of birth
- identifies you as male or female
- is unique to you
Changing your CHI number
We understand that you may or may not wish to change your CHI number and have provided information to help you make an informed choice around accessing screening.
If you’d like to change your CHI number, contact your GP.
