What actions have you taken since 2016 to improve Trans access to health care in London?

I strongly support the trans community to live their lives authentically and with respect. It is crucially important that they should have access to the specific types of healthcare that meet their needs. I recognise the difficulties that many trans people have experienced in obtaining such access, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. While championing the NHS, I will continue challenging it to deliver for all Londoners.

I have no responsibility for the delivery of health and care services. My role is one of advocacy. However, I regularly meet with the leadership of the NHS in London and will raise the issue of trans access to healthcare and the provision of appropriate services at a future meeting with the regional director of NHS London.
