Petition Do not ban transgender people from receiving care in mainstream hospital wards

The Health Secretary has said that transgender hospital patients in England may be banned from being treated in female- and male-only wards. We believe that this segregation is discriminatory, dangerous, and violates the Equality Act of 2010. It cannot go ahead.

More details

One MP has argued against this ban, citing freedom of information requests submitted to hospital trusts across the UK last year, which did not identify any recorded complaints from biologically female hospital inpatients about transgender patients being present.
