NHS trans maternity training based on ‘bogus research’ scrapped

from The Christian Institute:

NHS England has U-turned on plans for its latest ‘inclusive’ maternity programme after healthcare professionals accused it of “ideological capture”.

The proposed ‘Maternity Gender Inclusion Programme’ was withdrawn two days after the maternity care advocacy group With Woman flagged concerns.

The experts said the £100,000 scheme was based on ‘bogus research’ and lacked solid evidence.

‘Watershed moment’

Following NHS England’s climbdown, With Woman said: “This may be one of the first times a major programme based on flawed research and linked to gender activist organisations has been prevented in the UK public sector.

“At least for us in the maternity sector, it is a watershed moment and gives us great encouragement that ideologically-driven schemes with no evidence base will have no place in NHS maternity services.”

The programme was based on research from the taxpayer-funded LGBT Foundation.
