Following an intervention by Focus: The Identity Trust  regarding the uncertainty of the continuing prescription and monitoring of hormone therapies for transgender individuals by GPs in N.I,  Maeve Mc Laughlin MLA, Chair of the Stormont Health Committee has already sought clarification from the Health and Social Care Board regarding the proper funding and commissioning of this service, to ensure that all the individuals in N.I. affected continue to receive this essential therapy in appropriate healthcare facilities, and which adequately meets their needs to be treated with the same dignity, respect and equity as their genetic brothers and sisters reflecting true equality and respect for their basic human rights.

Maeve McLaughlin MLA fully supports Focus: The Identity Trust on this issue and when a response is received, we will update you as appropriate through this website.
