As part of our work as a trans human rights organisation, we monitor trans healthcare services in Northern Ireland and help them change through work with government, activists and health services. However, the most important input to that work comes from people on the ground – trans young people and adults, and the families of trans children. Your input ensures our work is addressing the relevant concerns and focusing our work in the correct areas.
We’re launching our first Trans Healthcare NI Survey, to capture the opinions and experiences of trans communities here in Northern Ireland.
This short questionnaire will help us gauge the feelings and experiences of the trans community and their families with the healthcare system in Northern Ireland. We’ll use this feedback to inform our campaigning and activism, with the aim of creating the best possible healthcare experience for trans people in NI.
The survey looks at trans people’s experiences of gender identity services in Northern Ireland, as well as of other ways of accessing trans healthcare, such as private healthcare providers and through self-medication. It will be open until Friday 29th March at 5pm GMT (UK/Ireland time).
If you need this survey sent as a hard copy, or you would like to attend an in-person focus group or individual interview as part of this research, please get in touch. We will be publishing details of focus groups shortly.
