BHP - Trans* patients’ experiences

Building Health Partnerships (BHP) is a national programme kindly funded by NHS England to improve health outcomes, through supporting the development of partnerships between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
 
In Greater Manchester (GM), the project centred on the health inequalities faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) people, exploring the challenges encountered. We worked in partnership to identify solutions and reduce barriers for LGB&T people accessing healthcare services. 

This survey was designed to gather information about Trans* patients experiences of accessing healthcare services from their GP.  It aims to build a picture of current healthcare provision by GPs for Trans* people in Manchester and beyond. 
 
The findings will help to inform the work necessary to insure that that GPs are better equipped to recognise and meet the full health needs of their trans* patients, and commissioners have an understanding of the services they need to commission.

Trans*
An umbrella term used to describe the full range of individuals who have a conflict with or a question about their birth assigned gender, and those who are experiencing gender confusion but don’t know exactly where they fall along the gender spectrum. Also relating to or describing a person whose identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender but who combines or moves between these or identifies as multi- or non-gendered.
