A timely, useful Easy Read guide to trans awareness and concerns has been developed by the charity Choice Support.

The guide provides information about what being trans and non-binary means, and has a general overview on sex, gender identity and gender expression.

Remember: as an NHS employee, you need to be comfortable and confident to help trans and non-binary patients and colleagues. If you have thought about your own knowledge gaps and want a chance to explore them and learn about gender and sexual diversity, contact Olivia.King6@nhs.net so she can provide you with the resources and support you need. Or you can book yourself on to a workshop (30 minutes) that covers the essentials of gender and sexual diversity  – the next one is on the 29th of March at 11 am at Euan Keats, PRH.
