How many more women will be sacrificed to trans ideology?

The NHS is in denial about the dangers of ‘trans inclusive’ wards.

There are times when ‘I told you so’ seems glib, when you don’t want to be proved right. What follows is one such example.

In August last year, I wrote for spiked about the need for single-sex hospital wards. I ended the piece with a question: ‘How many female patients will be placed in danger before the NHS realises that sex still matters?’ What I didn’t know when the piece was published was that there was already one woman who had been raped on a single-sex hospital ward. And to comply with NHS guidelines, her male attacker had been accommodated in line with his gender identity as a transwoman.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Baroness Nicholson told her peers in the House of Lords about the case. The police investigation was hampered, despite there being CCTV evidence and witnesses, because the NHS Trust argued that ‘there was no male in the hospital, therefore the rape could not have happened’.

Thanks to policies designed to facilitate trans inclusion, patients are now routinely placed on wards in accordance with their gender identity rather than their biological sex. It is estimated that just 2.9 per cent of the 0.3 per cent of the population who identify as trans take any steps towards a medical transition, the remaining 97.1 per cent keep all of their male biology intact. Despite this, the ironically named NHS ‘Single-Sex Accommodation’ guidance advises that ‘trans people and gender-variant children’ be placed in-line with ‘the way they dress, and the name and pronouns they currently use’. Baroness Nicholson was seeking to revoke this guidance by adding a clause to the Health and Care Bill.
