Gender identity engagement

We aim for everyone who works in or requires health and social care services in Lincolnshire to be confident that those services are responsive, inclusive, person-centred, and underpinned by our principles of compassion, dignity, respect, and safety.

We recognise that working in and accessing health and social care services as a transgender or non-binary person can be a complex and challenging experience.  We consider a transgender person to be a person whose gender is different from their assigned sex at birth, and a non-binary person to be a person who does not identify as exclusively a man or a woman.  We are developing the Lincolnshire Gender Identity Policy Framework, which will cover the entire NHS in Lincolnshire. This framework will set out the expected standards for gender non-conforming people when accessing services and receiving care. If you are transgender or non-binary, we particularly want to hear your thoughts and experiences to shape this policy framework and improve our services and your experiences.  Please complete our survey by Monday, 23 September 2024.

If you would prefer to speak to a member of our team about your experience/s, you need support in completing the survey, require an alternative format/s, require the survey in another language or you require the services of an interpreter, please contact the Engagement Team via e-mail: or on mobile: 07814 226996.


We would love to hear your views and experiences to help inform and shape the Lincolnshire Gender Identity Policy Framework and improve services and experiences for patients.
